Aisha Tochigi is Japanese and Ghanaian. She lived in Ghana for seven years, but spent most of her life living in Japan. Being a mixed minority in Japanese society was not easy for her growing up due to discrimination. Aisha was also subjected to extreme poverty as a child and contracted malaria while living in Africa.
These challenges made Aisha grow stronger and she was able to gain a wide perspective on other cultures. She’s now an activist for malaria eradication and works for campaigns that support women’s rights and orphanages.
Aisha is also using her platform as an Asian-Black woman to spread awareness about discrimination. She stands for equality in race and gender and is working with social activists, along with hosting events where people discuss racism and biracial identity. Aisha’s ambition is to make a change in the world where people won’t be judged for who they are.
Aisha's father has 25 siblings.
When Aisha was younger and living in Ghana, she'd get her household water from a communal well.
Aisha comes from a diverse and multicultural family. Her father is originally from Togo, her mother is from Japan and she grew up in Ghana and Japan.
