Kapamilya star Kim Chiu admitted that she had regrets for not being able to finish her studies as she opted to pursue her career in the entertainment industry.
She made the revelation in her latest YouTube vlog that premiered on Sunday, April 11, where she answered questions about her most searched items on Google.
When asked about where she went to college, the 30-year-old actress and host said that one of her greatest regrets in life is not being able to go to college.
“Isa ito sa mga regrets ko in life na hindi ako nakatungtong ng college,” she said.
She explained that even though she was not able to go to college, she takes pride in being able to send her siblings to college and made them complete their studies.
“I think everything happens for a reason. Dito ako dinala. Masaya ako na napag-college ko ‘yung tatlo sa mga kapatid ko and then nakapagtapos sila sa pag-aaral. I think it’s rewarding na for me. I think ito talaga ‘yung tadhana.”
However, the Chinita Princess revealed that she tried studying for college in a home-schooled setup while she was doing projects in showbiz as well. But she ended up not finishing her course as she found it hard to balance her studies with her career.
“Kinuha ko ‘yung business management. Sa UPOU, magkaklase lang ako online tapos kapag may recitation, magvi-video cam kami nung teacher dati.
“Dati pa pala uso na ang homeschooling talaga bago pa itong pandemic na ito but hindi ako nagtagal kasi hindi ko kinaya,” she said.
“Ang daming assignments and projects tapos nagteteleserye pa ako and nag-a-‘ASAP.’ Though hindi ko naman sinisi ‘yung mga projects na iyon because those are opportunities na hindi natin pwedeng palampasin. Ang pag-aaral I’m sure naman nandiyan lang iyan.”
She then explained that she’s not closing her doors entirely to having a college degree; hinting that she has plans of studying college, again.
“There is always a way and time na makabalik tayo sa pag-aaral and makakakuha tayo ng college degree. Soon. Hindi natin iyan iba-block. Let’s just look forward na matuloy ko ‘yung college ko. Pero nag-expire na ‘yata ‘yung UPOU ko so back to one na ulit ako sa as a college girl.”
