Meet a New Tar Heel: Alexis Tchakarov
A four-time national champion in taekwondo, Alexis brings a winning combination of belief, self-esteem, and discipline to Chapel Hill.
Alexis Tchakarov discovered her love of taekwondo when she was 10 and has collected an extensive list of medals and titles since then — including becoming a taekwondo world champion, not just once but four times.
As an incoming first-year student, the Tar Heel plans on studying biology and drawing on her taekwondo experiences and accomplishments to succeed in the classroom.
I’ve learned a lot of life skills through taekwondo. I definitely see it crossing over into my life here at UNC.
