Yuuki Yamasaki • 山崎勇輝
Major: Music Composition (3rd year)
Growing up with strict parents, Yuuki had been signed up for piano lessons much to his dissatisfaction. Eventually he grew to love music and took up learning other instruments such as guitar and drums.
In 5th grade Yuuki's family made the decision to move from California to New York due to work purposes, forcing him to leave everything and everyone he knew behind; including Asami.
After high school, Yuuki had been accepted into Juilliard as a concert piano major much to his mom's delight. Yuuki however, was not happy with this alternative that she had given him. And so he dropped out, switched his major, and transferred to a different university known for their music and arts program, which led him back to California in Los Angeles. Although his parents reluctantly pay for his tuition, Yuuki works at a cafe near campus for basic living costs and necessities.
Asami Summers • 麻美サマーズ
Minor: Illustration (2nd year)
Asami grew up in San Diego, California where she also met her childhood friend, Yuuki. He had kept her a great deal of company at his home as Asami's parents were often busy with work. At Yuuki's home, they would watch movies, play video games, and do all sorts of activities together. It was also here that Asami found her passion for drawing in her free time.
Yet the absence of attunement from her parents ended up having consequences. Asami had formed an insecure attachment style which in turn resulted in an inferiority complex. After Yuuki had long gone, Asami considered majoring in art, but worries of the future held her back. She opted for psychology and a minor in illustration, leaving her unsatisfied in her choices.
