Akiho Higano

Akiho was born in Saitama, Japan. She is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in human environment design at Toyo University. Akiho has a passion for making better inclusive environments and striving for high quality of inclusive design. Her past experience with disability made her realize that there is a lot to be done in the inclusive design field. She believes that assistive devices are not only for people with disabilities but everyone on a spectrum of different abilities. She wishes to create assistive designs that help overcome the prejudices society has towards people with disabilities. In her spare time, she enjoys Japanese sweets, music, and finding antiquarian bookstores.
