Popular model and actress Emi Takei, 18, has "graduated" from modeling for teen fashion magazine Seventeen.
Takei was given a send-off Friday at an event dubbed a "graduation ceremony" by the magazine's publishers. Takei has been modeling for the magazine for 5 years and 9 months.
A tearful Takei told reporters, "I wanted to stay a little longer." Takei said she plans to continue both acting and modelling. "I'd like to keep trying to do the things I enjoy," she said.© Japan Today
