With her graduation day nearing, Julie Anne San Jose can’t help but feel proud about her recent achievement: earning a college degree in Mass Communication.
Despite the demands of her work, the Kapuso singer-actress was able to juggle school and showbiz.
One proof of her hard work is her graduation photo, which she posted on her Instagram account on May 26.
Asia’s Pop Sweetheart admitted that it wasn’t an easy ride for her.
“There will always be tough times, regrets and failures as well as success, reward and happiness,” Julie Anne said in her post.
And there was everything. Sleepless nights, fatigue and even disappointments, but those were transient emotions brought by much studying and lack of rest sometimes. I've realized it's okay to admit I wasn't perfect, i was struggling. I've juggled work and studies, yet managed to survive. I definitely have to say that it's all worth it. As I went through four and a half years, i've learned that it pays not to worry so much about where you ranked but rather think about the joy you get with what you do. Life doesn't offer us a smooth path. There will always be tough times, regrets and failures as well as success, reward and happiness. Before closing this chapter, it's pertinent to thank the people who continue to inspire me. My family who raised me, for the guidance and unconditional love; my friends and peers, for joining me in the fight for life, and making all efforts fulfilled; my professors and teachers, for imparting profound wisdom; and lastly, God for the blessings and the wonderful gift of knowledge. It's been a long road but with hardwork and patience, anything is possible. This is certainly a huge milestone.. The tassel's worth the hassle. San Jose, Julie Anne P.
