Sharon Vera is a decorated Tae Kwon Do athlete who is currently training to compete in the world championship to make the 2020 Olympic USA Team. Her training took her to Miami, Florida over Winter Break. The intense training schedule forced Sharon to miss two weeks of school in January. However she made sure she did not fall behind in her school work. In December, Sharon asked all her teachers for work and upon returning to school, Sharon had completed all her work and was caught up with all her classmates who were in attendance during the first two weeks of January.
Sharon continues to train here at home while keeping up with all her work at school. Vera is in Ms. Barlos’ advisory.
