I have an announcement for everyone.I, Momoko Tsugunaga, will graduate on the 30th June of 2017 from Country Girls as well as Hello! Project.Since I succeeded the Hello! Project Kids Audition on the 30th June of 2002, it would make 15 years, and on this turning point, I have decided to continue further ahead on a new road.I love idols. If I have to say it accurately, I love being an idol, I love spending everyday with all the fans, and I really enjoyed my activities until now from the bottom of my heart.While having my idol activities, I wanted to study much more on parallel because I love children so I entered the university. In 2012, I had the experience on teaching practice and when I graduated from university, on the same time I get the teacher’s license for elementary school and kindergarten.
I always had in my mind for some time, the “education”, especially the “early childhood education” path I wanted to get in.From June 30th, I will devote myself once again in studying education for children, field for which I hope to work for.Momoko Tsugunaga
