Congratulations are in order for ABS-CBN actress Alexa Ilacad for finishing college.
On Monday, March 14, 2022, the 22-year-old Kapamilya actress took to Instagram to express her gratitude to everyone who took part in her college journey.
The former Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10 celebrity housemate uploaded her graduation photos that were shot in November 2021, during her time in the Kapamilya network's top-rating reality show.
For her caption, she quoted Colin Powell and wrote, "A dream does not become a reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work."
Alexa added that finishing her college studies has been her greatest achievement.
She wrote, "Still my greatest achievement [graduation emoji[ I have nothing but gratitude in my heart for my @trestonph family.
"I am blessed to have had a great support-system in school and at home.
"Thankful for my professors and mentors who helped me power through college without ever sacrificing excellence, and to my peers/barkada for making college life easier!"

She wrote, "...I hope I made you proud. This one’s for you [emoji] #collegegraduate #trestoninternationalcollege #businessad #wearetreston #goldenlion."
