Shari attended a public school for a few years, but she did not like the environment as many of her fellow students used abusive language and also did drugs. This had a huge impact on Shari and this scared her parents. Hence, they decided to enroll her at a private school.

Shari had a hard time making friends in elementary school. She used to be a quiet girl and found it hard to start a conversation with her schoolmates. As time went by, she started socializing with others and ended up making a few friends.

Shari Franke has always been a perfectionist. She is very punctilious about completing her school projects and assignments on time. She pays extra attention to every single detail in whatever she does. She is very organized and prefers planning her day beforehand.

Shari wants to move to Manhattan, New York when she grows up. When she was in fifth grade, Shari wanted to become a school teacher. However, her career preferences kept changing with every passing year.

Shari hates summer and wants her summer vacations to be cut short as she loves going to school. One of the main reasons for hating summer is that she develops skin allergies during the season.

She loves writing and hence maintains a diary. She even has a whiteboard attached to her bunk bed on which she writes down her memories and reads them every night. Though she does not like reading fantasy novels, ‘Harry Potter,’ which she has already read more than 13 times, is an exception.

Inspired by her grandmother, Shari Franke developed an interest in sketching. She loves listening to country music, which is her favorite musical genre. She enjoys watching movies, especially romantic flicks. Shari is an emotional person and often cries while watching sentimental movies.

Shari loves solving the Rubik’s cube and is also pretty good at it. She suffers from acrophobia, apiphobia, and nyctophobia.

Controversies and Scandals

In August 2021, Shari moved out of the house to pursue college. Many speculated that she won’t be returning to the family channel and might stop talking to the family. This supposition came true when in 2022 Shari came on Instagram and confirmed that she was no longer in touch with her family. She blamed her mother’s affiliation with ConneXions, a parent coaching platform, as the reason for the split. However, she hoped to reconcile with her family in the future.
