THANKFUL AND PROUD. Ito ang naging post ni Gerphil sa kanyang Instagram account:

“Lord, thank you! I can finally harvest what I've planted since 2010.

“In a span of 6 years, I am overjoyed to announce that I finished two degrees (Diploma in Creative Performing Musical Arts & Bachelor of Music- Cum Laude) at The College of Music, University of the Philippines Diliman.

“Although it wasn't always a smooth ride, I am truly blessed with all the experiences I had as an undergraduate student including my Asia's Got Talent stint as I not only represented my country but also my beloved university.

“Of course, none of these beautiful experiences would have happened without the undying love and support of my family, mentors and friends.

“Mom, thank you for everything. People often say you're too protective because they always see you with me and sometimes, they see your "mataray" side but what they don't know is that you are just protecting me.

“Dad, selbst wenn du in Hamburg bist, bin ich fr die Inspiration noch dankbar.

“To my mentors, thank you for unselfishly sharing your knowledge in music and for honing my craft.

“This triumph is not mine but yours! #UniversityOfThePhilippines #GerphilFlores”
