Here is a little bit about NikkiHatsune. NikkiHatsune is just her stage name, her nickname is Nikki but, her actual name is Nikola. She is a 16 year old girl from Slovakia who is a rising star on YouTube and NicoNicoDouga. She oftens uploads dance covers to YouTube and NND. The dances she covers are J-POP and Vocaloid songs! You can obviously tell that she is a huge fan of the vocaloid Hatsune Miku and J-POP singer KyaryPamyuPamyu! You can also tell from her social media such as her YouTube channel, Google+, Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook that she loves chatting and interacting with her fans! Now...let's get straight to the interview!:
Liv N' Luv Japan: When and what interested you in Japanese culture?
NikkiHatsune: I've been interested in Japanese culture since I was a little kid. I used to dress up as a geisha when I was 5. Haha! But, I got more into it through anime when I was 9.
Liv N' Luv Japan: What inspired you to dance? Is dancing something you want to do as a lifelong career?
NikkiHatsune: A well known dancer, Aikawa Kozue did! I love the way she dances and spread smiles all over the world. I'd never thought of dancing if not for her. And no, not really. I want to keep it only as a hobby since I can't imagine doing it professionally.
Liv N' Luv Japan: Do your friends and family support you with your hobby of dancing? If so, how?
NikkiHatsune: I consider myself very lucky, because they all do. My friends always go filming with me and even take photos of places where I could dance, which is really lovely! And as for my family...umm let's say they are proud of me, which has caused some awkward family meetings where everyone watched my videos. Well, they weren't really awkward but I felt incredibly awkward!
Liv N' Luv Japan: What are some challenges that you had come across when you first started dancing?
NikkiHatsune: Since I hadn’t danced before starting on YouTube, pretty much everything was a challenge. Mostly sloppy moves though! It took a lot of time to get rid of them but I’m happy to see some improvement now. Also energy, I used to dance like a zombie (same goes for my expressions).
Liv N' Luv Japan: Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now?
NikkiHatsune: Hopefully somewhere abroad... and doing something artsy! I’d like to try to live either in Japan, Ireland or England (at least for few years).
Liv N' Luv Japan: What musical artists has had the most impact on you?
NikkiHatsune: I’d say Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Perfume and H!P groups like Morning Musume!

Thank you guys so much for checking out my very first interview! I also want to thank Nikola for taking out her time to let me interview her. We have tried this once over Facebook but because of my bad connection during the time we couldn't finish and never really started. I was going to wait to post this until the beginning of 2015 or it was going to be post on the first of December but I have gotten so excited about this post, I wanted to publish it today! Plus, I know that I haven't being posting like I should lately and I currently I don't have my laptop on me so that makes it even harder! >.<
But I want to thank everyone and I hope that you guys will enjoy Liv N' Luv Japan very first interview!! ^_^
