Liza Soberano is looking forward to pursuing a career in Psychology.

The Kapamilya star is earning her degree by attending online classes during the quarantine period.

"It's keeping me busy, it's keeping my mind busy, and I feel like I'm learning a lot. I'm really happy about that," the young ABS-CBN actress said during the virtual Nivea event held last August 7, 2020.

She initially intended for Psychology to be her pre-law course, as she dreamed of becoming a lawyer.

However, Liza continued, "I realized I don't want anything that has to do with the law or politics in general.

"So, now, I just want to be a counselor. I want to help people, especially the abnormal psychology side.

"I want to deal with people that have severe mental health conditions."

"Abnormal psychology" is defined as a branch of psychology that studies mental and emotional disorders.

In Liza's YouTube vlog dated July 18, the actress talked a bit about her favorite subjects in Psychology.

She remarked, "My favorite subjects would be Theories of Personalities and Intro to Counseling because that's all I've took so far.

"But mostly Intro to Counseling because I want to become a counselor."

At the time of her vlog, Liza was still choosing between clinical psychology and abnormal psychology as a specialization.

STUDYING COLLEGE ONLINE

The quarantine period gave Liza enough time to focus on her studies.

Even if classes were mostly done online, Liza said she enjoyed the process.

The young actress said in the virtual interview, "Beforehand, I went back to college two years ago, but I actually have to go to the school at least twice a month or once a week, which I couldn't commit to doing.

"So, the quarantine really gave me the opportunity to really focus on my studies and to go to school more often.

"In a way, even if it's not regular classes, it kind of feels regular to me because there's a regular schedule I have to follow."

At first, Liza was anxious about going back to school, especially since it had been years since she had the full classroom experience.

"I was nervous because I was like, 'What if I forgot everything I’ve ever learned about?'" she revealed.

"But then I realized, in Psychology, you don't need everything you've learned about in high school."

At the time of the virtual press interview, the Star Magic artist wrapped up her first year in college.

Liza was proud to say that she "qualified for top Psychology student" in her freshman year.

She said, "That's one thing I'm really proud of."
