Happy Birthday Sayaka!
You had been an excellent role model to many of the juniors, the members and not forgetting, your fans. You had taught many of us how to be strong in what we believed in, how to gave faith in everything we do, how to be determined to work towards our goals, how to be true to people around ourselves, and of course how to be true to oneself.
You’re not without flaws; but you had showed us how we could be proud of our flaws and made it such that it is of help to us, rather than be what tripped us.
You are strong, but you are not without emotions; words might had hurt you along your long journey in AKB48, but you had showed us that all these will not get you down, but become a pushing force to show the ones who had not believed you, that you are so much better than them.
We will be waving goodbye to the you in AKB48 in a month’s time, but at the same time, we will all be giving you the push forward towards an even more promising future after AKB48. It will be your stage this August in Tokyo Dome, but it will be your arena after August, in the vast Japanese entertainment scene. Do not let anything get you down because you know every one of us will be your cushion if you fall, your force if you need a push, and we will all be supporting and loving you. Soar for your dreams and continue to influence even more people out of AKB48.
Once again, Happy Birthday Sayaka.
