Anja Teresa Sofia Gozon Abrogar is clearly following in the footsteps of her mother, GMA-7 executive Annette Gozon.
With a grade of 3.79 out of 4.00, Anja graduated magna cum laude from Ateneo de Manila University with a degree in Management Engineering.
Her mother Annette finished the same course from the same university, and graduated cum laude in 1993.
Interestingly, her dad Joselito Abrogar's undergraduate course was also Management Engineering.
Both mother and daughter have an impressive academic background.
Annette graduated as valedictorian from grade school and high school at Colegio de San Agustin in Makati, and also when she took up Bachelor of Laws at the University of the Philippines, where she finished cum laude in 1997.
Annette also went to Harvard Law School for her Master of Laws.
Anja, for her part, graduated with honors from Saint Pedro Poveda College. She entered the university receiving the Ateneo Freshman Merit Scholarship, which is a full-academic scholarship awarded to the top 20 entrance exam performers out of thousands of applicants.
Through GMA Corporate Communications, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Anja about one valuable lesson she learned from her mom.
She replied, “One of the things I apply to my life which I learned from my mom is that when I work, I should do my best because in everything I do, I do it for God's glory!”
Will she become a lawyer like her mom?
Or will she also make her foray into entertainment? After all, her grandfather is GMA-7’s top honcho, Atty. Felipe L. Gozon.
At present, Anja is working as an investment associate at Global Founders Capital, a venture capital firm based in Berlin.
