Tippy Dos Santos hopes to inspire other students to continue pursuing their life goals: "To everyone out there doubting themselves and rethinking life goals because they think they can't do so many things at once, THINK AGAIN and remember that with enough determination, inspiration and love for yourself and life, you can always find a way to finish your checklists."

In a previous post, Tippy dedicated her graduation to her supportive parents, Happy and John Dos Santos, who inspired her to finish her studies on time.

Tippy wrote: "The most important reason for me to fight through the hardships was the love I have for my family, knowing that it would make my parents so happy to know that I have given importance to the most precious gift they could give me, my education.

"Mom and Dad, I love you both so much and the two of you have given me so much love that I could never do anything to repay the love and care you both have given me throughout my life.

"The both of you are my greatest inspirations and I will ALWAYS make sure to find ways to make you proud and let you know that the every bit of my heart yearns to make you guys feel my love. I love you both so much."

Tippy also thanked her older sister Jax Dos Santos for helping her make it through college, and her close family and friends for their support.

To my family, cousins, friends, teachers, and coworkers, Salamat Sa pagmamahal at paniniwala na kaya Ko to Gawin. ??"

Towards the end of her message, Tippy hopes that this feat will inspire others to be determined in pursuing their life goals whil doing other things on the side.

The MYX VJ said, "To everyone out there doubting themselves and rethinking life goals because they think they can't do so many things at once, THINK AGAIN and remember that with enough determination, inspiration and love for yourself and life, you can always find a way to finish your checklists."

WARNING: extremely long and cheesy appreciation post coming.???? There have come many times in my college life when I felt as though I couldn't push on anymore, whether that be because I didn't have enough sleep because I had work or because I didn't know what to prioritize first -- my schoolwork or my studies. Somehow, by the grace of God, I found so many reasons to just move forward and suck it up even through the hardest of days. The most important reason for me to fight through the hardships was the love I have for my family, knowing that it would make my parents so happy to know that I have given importance to the most precious gift they could give me, my education. Mom and Dad, I love you both so much and the two of you have given me so much love that I could never do anything to repay the love and care you both have given me throughout my life. The both of you are my greatest inspirations and I will ALWAYS make sure to find ways to make you proud and let you know that the every bit of my heart yearns to make you guys feel my love. I love you both so much. Ate Jax, you kept me sane throughout this whole experience. I love you, my bestestfriend. I'm thankful for every single time you helped me believe that there's nothing I couldn't do. To my family, cousins, friends, teachers, and coworkers, Salamat Sa pagmamahal at paniniwala na kaya Ko to Gawin. ?? To everyone out there doubting themselves and rethinking life goals because they think they can't do so many things at once, THINK AGAIN and remember that with enough determination, inspiration and love for yourself and life, you can always find a way to finish your checklists. (Minsan nga Lang, may hawak ka pang microphone habang gumagawa Ng thesis????) Lastly, to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, thank You. You have been my rock and my light through every speed bump and mountain I had to cross. Your love gives me life. I am so blessed to have You in my life. Mom and Pop, this one's for you!!!?? Happy June 2016!????????????

PROUD MOM. Meanwhile, Tippy's proud mom, Happy, also posted a message for her daughter on Instagram, citing her latest achievement and expressing her gratitude for her daughter's "gift" to her and her husband John. Happy also recalled Tippy's hardships through her college years, which makes her achievement more special.

She wrote: "I've seen Tippy evolve into a young woman who did not just grow so much wiser and smarter, but has become more attuned to people's welfare as well. She has always been that, but more so now.

"I am so glad she chose to go to U.P., even if there were times I couldn't understand why everything just seemed so hard! Even during enrollment, when she would go to school at 3 am just to get subjects!

She continued, "They mentioned hell week, but it seemed like hell years because there were many times when I already wanted to put sleeping pills in her coffee just so she can get some sleep! ??????????

"And now she's all done and ready to conquer the world bearing her UP Diploma!!!

"Tippy, I love you so much! Thank you for the overwhelming pride you have given to me again.

"God bless you more and more because you truly deserve it for being such a wonderful daughter to me and your Dad."

Thank you UP Diliman for giving @tippydossantos8 the best 4 years of her life. I thought it was during her High School years then, but this was much better. I've seen Tippy evolve into a young woman who did not just grow so much wiser and smarter, but has become more attuned to people's welfare as well. She has always been that, but more so now. I am so glad she chose to go to U.P., even if there were times I couldn't understand why everything just seemed so hard! Even during enrollment, when she would go to school at 3 am just to get subjects! They mentioned hell week, but it seemed like hell years because there were many times when I already wanted to put sleeping pills in her coffee just so she can get some sleep! ?????????? And now she's all done and ready to conquer the world bearing her UP Diploma!!! Tippy, I love you so much! Thank you for the overwhelming pride you have given to me again. God bless you more and more because you truly deserve it for being such a wonderful daughter to me and your Dad. ???????????????????????? Thank you so much STAGES Family for this wonderful message. Thank you @stellasison ?? "To get into the University of the Philippines means you have gone through the eye of a needle. To stay the course and complete your studies is a really big deal. Especially if you're Tippy Dos Santos, who has weekly tapings for Myx, hosting gigs on weekends, mall tours to promote her music album, who managed a solo concert late last year, and did a whole slew of other things while doing research and writing up reports and organizing fieldwork and studying for exams. YOU RAISED THE BAR TIPPY! We at Stages are all extremely proud of you! Happy graduation day!" #wearestages
