Kina Malpartida, the former world featherweight boxing champion, surprised her fans this week by resuming her social media activity to tell her she was teaching at a school for children in the United States. The athlete, who dabbled on TV as a contestant of the ‘reality’ “This is war,” is not the only one who has moved away from the screens to turn her life around.
Here is a review of other faces of the national TV that, far from it, have chosen other paths and occupations:
1. Sofia FrancoRELATED
The blonde left her job as one of the most required TV channels on the small screen in Peru to support her husband, the mayor of La Molina, Álvaro Paz de la Barra. He currently dedicates his days to social work with the Ladies Committee of La Molina.
2. Eyal Berkover
The Israeli model gained fame in Peru as it passed through the "This is war" and "Combat" programs. In 2017 he starred in a controversy after being detained by the National Superintendence of Migrations to be deported, when he still had his current permit. Then the ojiverde chose to return to his native country, where he currently stands out as a model and participant of shows such as the successful “Survivor” format.

This week, Romero presented his first book in Madrid: "Zooilógico".
