Heeding the Call of the Times

For most showbiz personalities, education takes the backseat once they have tasted the limelight and the screams of the adoring fans. Reasons like “fame comes only once” or “education can be taken later” are commonly said as to why some personalities stop schooling. On the one hand, some showbiz talents have successfully combined finishing their college degrees while maintaining an acting career. On the other hand, a handful of celebrities opted to drop their careers in favor of school.

Take the case of this Sweet Actress (SA). When SA was launched into the business, the public adored her as she was articulate and a looker. She had both feet planted on the ground despite her family background. Besides, SA was the epitome of the ideal daughter, who followed her parents at the expense of her lovelife, among others. However, SA was just in her teens when she started and finishing high school was set aside.

After some years in the business, SA’s career is stable. She has undergone several trials, such managerial problems, verbal tussles with co-actors, breakups, and even family conflicts, which all happened in the eyes of the public. While she has a respectable set of followers and is a recognized household name, SA never reached that peak of stardom where fans swoon at her presence. Despite this state, SA is still a respected talent. Finally, SA has given in to another pressure – the pressure of going back to school.

Apparently, SA reviewed, prepared, and passed the accreditation test to make her eligible for college without having to go back to high school. Was this decision her own or was this influenced by her current relationship? Her decision would certainly silence her critics who fuss about her lack of formal education. Besides, having a college degree would give her the edge over her contemporaries and would make her fit better in the circle of her current partner. Moreover, she can escape words like “Artista lang yan!” (She’s just an actress!).

“Learning is an ornament in prosperity, a refuge in adversity, and a provision in old age.” ― Aristotle

    1. May equivalency exam talaga for high school. They can take that test and if they pass they can be eligible for college. Yan yata yung sinsabi sa article. Alam ko Pambansang K got his HS diploma that way. Its a legit exam fr DECS.

    2. 12:28AM. Pwede talaga yun at hindi mo kailangan malakas or rich. Ang tagal na nyan. Hindi ka na inform? Inquire na at kailangan mo yata.

    3. next time mag research ka muna bago mag comment. out of school youth ka rin ata eh. mukhang kelangan mo to.

    4. Shunga lang, malakas ka man o hindi, may DepEd program na para sa mga ganyan. Be informed din minsan bago post!

    5. Pwede yun. Pept exam tawag dun. Usually pag matanda ka na para high school pinapayagan yun ganun exam.

    10. May Alternative Learning System (ALS) na po tayo, para sa mga 18 years old and above na hindi nakatapos ng high school. May mga hindi nakapasok kasi may mga problems (financial, personal: early pregnancy, etc) Kung sa tingin naman ng student na kaya niya pumasa sa exams, pwede siya kumuha thru DepEd-ALS. Kapag pumasa siya pwede sya mag-College. :)

      FYI lang sa mga hindi pa po alam.

    11. @12:57am, decs talaga ha? Ang lakas maka 90s!

    12. I got accelerated to college as well. I skipped 2 years of HS. Wala kaming pera, wala din kaming kakilala. Nagapply ako sa District office ng DepEd sa bayan namin. Nagbayad lang ako ng 50 pesos nun tapos tinake ko ung exam. 1 day exam un. Pero nagreview talaga ako nun. Buti na lang nga nakapasa I think you need at least 89% para makaaccelerate ka sa College. Whoever this artist is, good for her. :)

      Delete
    13. pwede yan for people older than 25 (not sure of the exact age) na hindi nakatapos ng HS basta mapasa nila ang exam. this is a good move kasi kelangan lumibel sya. even M has been egging her to go back to school.

      Delete
    14. parang GED nga ito, the commenters are correct. Eto namang si ate, kung mag-komento, halatang hindi nag-review... tsk, tsk.

  4. good influence si sir!

  5. I don't see the point. If she's already established as an actress I don't think she still needs the diploma. I think her family has businesses too. Just sayin'.

    ReplyDelete

    1. On the flip side, she may have her reasons. One of her hang-ups prolly? Part of her bucket list?

      Delete
    2. Getting a diploma is always a smart thing to do. Being officially qualified for something is always worth the expenses, effort, and time.

      Delete
    3. Established for now and probably, if she's lucky, for years to come. H just wants a fall back since being in showbiz isn't really that stable. Its a competitive industry. If one day she becomes "laos" at least she has a college diploma and the skills to manage her family business. Its a wise decision really. Kudos to H!

      Delete
    4. It's not just having a diploma. It is knowing that you finished college no matter what. You should not stop learning and improving yourself. That's H is trying to do. Good for her.

    5. @12:38 d ba pwede self fullfilment??

    6. it's not just a diploma but an accomplishment. kaya kadalasan na lang sinasabi ng mga tao na walang pinag aralan o walang alam ang mga artista, eh dahil na rin sa mga taong may baloktot na pag iisip kagaya mo.

      Delete
    7. eh ano naman ngaoyn. choice nya yan. yung iba nga nag ma-masters pa eh. as if naman pera mo ang ipambabayad sa tuition nya.

    8. drop-out ka siguro noh? kaya mo nasasabi yan

      Delete
    9. Siguro baka gamitin against her partner yung lack of diploma niya. Especially if partner is very ambitious.

  6. Good for her. Finishing one's formal education is never too late ^_^

  7. Dati hindi ko siya like, pero nagulat ako na good daughter pala siya. Also, talented siya, kaya tama lang yung naisip niya na course. Good luck H!

    ReplyDelete
  8. good for her...i don't see anything wrong with artistas going back to school, at least they have a fallback pag di na sila sikat

  9. Oh diba kung si P toh.Atleast may gustong patunayan kahit hindi naman na niya kailangan.Masyado kasing mapagmataas yung iba dyan porket nakapagtapos.Yung iba nakapagtapos nga pero ano ginagamit ba? Bka nga mas matalino pa si P sa ibang diplomatic dyan eh.Very inteligent si girl yun lang sa pag ibig medyo nag failed sya dun.Hanga ako sa kanya kasi in her age naisip pa nyang mag aral diba role model pa din ang tawag dun :) I admire u girl and ipagpatuloy mo yan prove to everybody na kaya mo manindigan at maging responsableng tao.Your'e such a classy,sophisticated and a nice girl :)

  10. You can never underestimate the value of education. Oh sure, you can have all the success in the world, pero iba parin yung may pinag-aralan. It's not just about the diploma or the bragging rights, it's about getting a sense of accomplishment. Some people may not get that sense from studying, but if SA thinks she can get it from studying, then good for her.

  11. This BI is actually quite positive FP. Mabuti na yung may pinag-aralan ka kasi kahit papano may edge talaga ang ganun.

  20. Good for her. Wala nmn matanda sa college...when i finished HS all i want is to work so i took up a vocational course instead of a 4-yr course para makapag work agad. I regret that decision kasi limited lng pwed m pla applyan pag vocational lng natapos m. So when God gave me the time n opportunity to go back in college n pursue my bachelor's degree d nako nagpatumpik-tumpik pa.i grab it right away..though iam 15 yrs senior sa mga mates ko it doesn't matter, what matters most nmn in college is the willingness of the person to learn. Kya goodluck girl kaya mo yan!

  21. at least C is a good influence on H her parents should be happy about this development

    ReplyDelete
  22. i took the same exam sa decs. it's not special treatment for the rich, i should know kasi di naman ako mayaman, and besides, it wasn't that expensive. if you give them a valid reason why you should skip HS they'll allow you to take the test.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Kahit nabasa ko na lahat ng clue d ko pa rin getching!!!! Pa kopya naman mga first honors :((

  24. She should go back while she is young coz once she gets married and have kids, it would be tougher to reach that goal. Go H!

  25. Just go for it basta sa ikabubuti mo, H.

    3. 4:21 ano matalino si H? LOL Patawa ka teh. Kaya pala boploks siya sa mga interviews niya. Yung mga questions na tinatanong niya as a host puro sablay din. Mabuti pa si Time kahit nakakainis at least marunong magtanong ng tama.

    4. Excuse me teh? Intelihente sya teh. Pag nkausap mo dun mo malalaman. Nkausap mo na ba sya? Malamang hindi pa. But this girl is really something, di katulad ng mga nkatapos mga b nman. Nkapasa sa teacher pasang awa hahaha. Go H, i suuport you on that. Very good move! :)

    5. Anon 9:10 AM
      Hindi naman po cguro ninyo dapat kinikwestyon kung matalino siya o hindi, ang importante ung kagustuhan niya mag-aral, kapag bobo ba ang tao wala nang karapatan? It's her right lalo na kung para sa kabutihan at ikauunlad niya.
