Juliana Gomez is the real life Na Hee Do of K-Drama Twenty Five Twenty One.
Most people may know Juliana Gomez mainly because of her parents—actor and politicians Richard Gomez and Lucy Torres-Gomez—but what we love about her is how she chooses to stay lowkey and do her own thing despite the pressure from most people. “Today’s W🥇,” captions the 22-year-old as she posted a photo of herself being awarded the gold medal at the Thailand Open Fencing Championship over the weekend.
Juliana’s become the face of many fashion brands and magazine covers, but she’s slowly been carving a name for herself in the sports world. On her Instagram account, you’ll be able to see training videos wherein most of it is spent with her dad, who’s also the current president of the Philippine Fencing Association. Who would’ve thought that a hobby you and your dad enjoy would lead you to winning a gold medal for the country?
“May you keep on winning and bring more honor to the country,” Richard Gomez proudly shares to his followers accompanied by videos of Juliana during practice. He himself was also represented the Philippines at the SEA Games in the past, a path that isn’t too far from where she’s in at the moment. Juliana is also a part of the women’s volleyball team in UP but had to return to Ormoc because of the pandemic. Guess the universe is right after all, everything does happen for a reason and this might just be one of those moments.
