Singer Gerphil Flores graduates from college anew!

The Asia's Got Talent 2015 second runner-up announced the good news on her Instagram account on Thursday, June 6, and revealed that she has officially graduated from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.

The 28-year-old Pinay soprano went back to school in 2016 and decided to study Art History.

Gerphil made the decision to study again shortly after graduating cum laude from the University of the Philippines College of Music in Diliman, Quezon City in the same year.

In her Instagram post, Gerphil shared what inspired her to continue learning.

She wrote, "If there is one thing I learned in life that I will never get tired of sharing with others is that you should never stop learning. Learn more, discover more.. After completing my bachelor's degree in Music in 2016 at the University of the Philippines, Diliman, I decided to study again.

"This time, I wanted to have a bigger view of what Art History (music, painting, sculpture, architecture, photography etc) is all about. I applied at my dream school, The University of British Columbia and luckily...I got accepted."

Gerphil also shared some of the important things she learned while being away from the country for more than two years.

"Even though I've been away from the Philippines for almost 2 years, every experience I've had in this university led me to see the world of Art as if I was riding a magical carpet where it took me on a whole new journey (Yes, Aladdin inspired. I loved the movie.. so much!!)

"For me, the best thing you will find in UBC is its diversity. People from different cultures meet in this place. It will open your eyes and make you see what a wonderful world it is that we live in."

Towards the end of her post, Gerphil thanked her friends and family for supporting her in her latest journey.

She wrote, "I will be forever grateful to all those who motivated me in finishing my studies.

"To mom, you're the wonderwoman in my life, I love you to the moon and back.. Papi, thank you for the love and care.

"To my fiancé, you're my sunshine.. Thank you for everything! I love you!

"Last but not the least, to all my amazing Filipino and Canadian friends in Vancouver, thank you for making me feel at home during my stay in your beautiful place.

"I will miss you, Canada! See you again real soon! Congrats to all the grads! #TuumEst #UBCgrad"
