AKB48 member Suzuki Yuka has announced her graduation from the group.
Suzuki joined AKB48's Team 8 as a Shizuoka representative in 2019. On AKB48's official blog, she wrote, "When I was in elementary school, AKB48 was the first idol I liked. I never thought that I would actually be a member of AKB48. Once I was in, there were times I felt that I can't get buried here, or I became flustered trying to stand out. It was a short two years, but I learned and grew a lot during those two years. To my fans, members, and staff, thank you very much!"
Suzuki's graduation event will be held on September 27 at AKB48 Theater.
