Miyu is very cute so she's going to be a real star in Japan if she gets good results.

However the competition is very high within the JNT. Despite her outstanding results in Junior and Youth competitions, it looks like it will be very difficult to get in the Olympic team for example. ITO / HAYATA seem way above, and for the 3rd slot there's SATO, KIHARA, and many others about the same level, AND Miwa HARIMOTO is improving very very fast.
