Mother of Viral Masters Golf Girl Aaliyah Kikumoto Shares Inspiring Story of Modelling and Cheerleading Career

…By Joseph Benjamin for TDPel Media. Aaliyah Kikumoto, the 19-year-old who went viral on TikTok while watching Jon Rahm at the Masters golf tournament, is not the only star in her family.

Her mother, AJ, is a model who has performed in numerous runway shows and danced for the Denver Nuggets cheerleading squad.

In an interview with Daily Star Sport, AJ recounted her early days in Denver, living out of her car while auditioning for modelling and dancing gigs.

She ended up making the Nuggets’ famous Dancers and landed a modelling contract in just one weekend.

AJ’s modelling career eventually took a back seat as she and her husband Charles raised their six children, but she still models and performs with the Nuggets alumni squad once a year.

AJ’s story is inspiring, and it shows that with determination and hard work, anything is possible.

Her experience of living out of her car and still succeeding in the modelling and dancing industries is particularly inspiring.

It is also interesting to see how her career took a back seat as she focused on raising her family but has now picked up again as her children get older.

Her passion for modelling and dancing is evident, and it is heartening to see that she still gets to perform with her former colleagues and give back to the community through various charitable organisations.

Aaliyah’s viral moment at the Masters brought her a significant social media following and modelling opportunities, but it is fascinating to learn more about her mother’s career and the path she took to get where she is today.

The Kikumoto family seems to be full of talented and hardworking individuals, and it will be interesting to see what Aaliyah does next.
