GMA-7 actor Juancho Triviño will soon achieve his dream of getting a college degree.
The 26-year-old Kapuso actor is taking up Business Management at the De La Salle University-Manila.
Last Wednesday, August 21, Juancho uploaded a selfie and in his post opened up about the struggles he endured as a working student..
The Unang Hirit host wrote, "The final stretch before I graduate from college! Nagsimula ako mag-aral 2009, but when I started in the industry, I got caught up with work and never really prioritized finishing my degree.
"Last year, I decided to continue what my parents worked hard for: my education.
"Since then I have been juggling work and school to the point na nagpapahatid ako sa service ng Unang Hirit mismo sa La Salle, magpapa-excuse ako sa work because I have exams, or minsan kahit walang tulog, derecho ako ng class.
"No special treatments also, bagsak kung bagsak.
"Mahirap siya, friends, and kahit na it’s cool to look good and take care of outer stuff, I’ve realized that education is still one of the best things we can prioritize and pursue. #Schooliscool#ThisIsForYouMama"
In a previous interview with PEP.ph (PhilippineEnterainment Portal), Juancho said one of the biggest challenges he had to endure as a working student was dividing his time between his work and studies
He said, "Nahihirapan ako, nahihirapan talaga ako. There are times na kailangan ko tumanggi sa trabaho.
"But it's all in good faith naman. Papunta naman ako sa tamang landas, e. If I get the degree, then good for me."
Juancho said his parents, Patty and Greg Triviño, served as his inspiration to graduate from college.
The Kapuso talent told PEP.ph, "Isang reason ko rin kung bakit gusto kong makapagtapos ng college, ipinundar nung parents ko simula nung magsimula ako sa school up until I was like third year college.
"'Tapos nag-showbiz na ako. Gusto ko rin talaga mabigay sa kanila yung diploma, kasi deserve rin naman talaga nila yun."
