Varshini “Varsha” Muppa has studied karate with FSDC since she was a second grader. At the age of 13, in December, 2019, she earned her Junior Black Belt. She really enjoys teaching and learning karate and feels FSDC has given her a new family to count on, and feels that karate has helped her improve her overall athletic ability and given her confidence in herself.
This past year, she was lucky enough to attend a few karate tournaments where she was able to see and learn from other schools and even other styles of martial art.
Varsha competes in the Science Olympiad and Academic Games at school, and does peer to peer tutoring for sixth graders. She also participates in an Indian classical dance called Bharatanatyam. And she enjoys drawing, reading, and listening to music.
