Student Profile – Caroline Rose

In Step With . . .Caroline Rose

Ten-year-old Caroline Rose came to Master Shim’s World Class Tae Kwon Do in February 2017 for Bring A Friend Week … and she never left. She was honored as the 2017 Student of the Year, is currently a part of the Demo Team, and has won numerous gold medals in tournaments. The Fayetteville location is like her second home.


Caroline is thriving in an activity she enjoys. But for her mother, Bethany Clark, this experience means so much more. “We have seen so many changes in Caroline’s self-esteem and confidence.  She now speaks with such confidence to everyone and believes in herself,” Bethany states.

Here’s a look at February’s featured student, Caroline Rose.
