Despite their busy work schedules, The Half Sisters stars Barbie Forteza and Vaness del Moral both graduated from high school through the Department of Education’s Alternative Learning System last June 25.
Barbie and Vaness were very proud of their achievements since it is not an easy feat to juggle their careers with academics.
The soap's lead star Barbie said, “Isa lang naman ang gusto nating lahat, we all want to grow, we want to be better and we want to push ourselves beyond, kaya naman taas noo nating tanggapin ang pagpapatunay na tapos na tayo finally."
For her part, Vaness’s hard work finally paid off, and she wishes to eventually get a college degree.
She said, “I dedicate my diploma to my family, friends, relatives as well as the people who have yet to graduate from high school.
“It’s never too late to attain your goals and dreams in life. Through Dep Ed’s ALS along with hard work, achieving these goals and dreams are made even more reachable.
“My dream of pursuing a college degree has indeed become closer.”
Both Barbie and Vaness are part of The Half Sisters which airs Mondays to Fridays, after Eat Bulaga! on GMA Afternoon Prime.
