Yes, the cafeteria is where you will find her, and should you so happen to bump into her you're bound to get challenged to a a game of ping pong and her favorite class so far has been the weightlifting class in the gym. Jera's top quality that makes her a good representative of TCC students is that she is a very friendly, outgoing and easy to talk to. Which is why more than likely you'll find her around campus forming connections and encouraging others to join OSE. Jera used to live in South Korea where she quickly picked up the Korean language and earned a black belt in Taekwondo. She 100% loves pasta, photography, playing sports, and going to the gym.
A huge 49ers fan, her love for football helps her to keep her mind off of spiders which she fears with a passion (it's the legs ya'll, it's not natural to have so many!). The thing she wished she had known when starting TCC is that It’s ok to ask questions (like a lot of them). Don’t be afraid. When asked what music she listens to to get pumped up… literally any Luke Bryan songs; “Feelin Myself” by Mac Dre, “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen, “Living on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi, and “I Want it That Way” by Backstreet Boys. After TCC Jera plans to transfer to a university to continue her study of Psychology, analyzing behavior.
