This week we met up with Tomo to ask the question:
“What was your childhood dream?”
Co-written by Danielle Quijada
Tomo, who is originally from Tokyo, Japan, had ambitions of becoming a veterinarian when she was younger.
“I had thirteen cats as a child and I only have one now since moving to Brighton four years ago,” she said.
Suppressing a giggle with her hand, she explained:
“It is named after a friend who moved abroad to Thailand. Her name is Benjamina Parker — or Benji for short.”
Today, she works as a sous chef and her dream is to buy a camper van and travel all over with Benji by her side.
