Former “Goin’ Bulilit” star Alexa Ilacad once again proved that her acting career is not a hindrance to achieving good grades in college as she just completed another semester as “dean’s lister.”
The 19-year-old Kapamilya star is a second-year marketing management student at Treston International College School of Business and Technology in Taguig City.
Last Monday, November 25, Alexa shared the good news through an Instagram post by writing, “Dean’s lister once more,” along with a photo of her showing her Certificate of Recognition.
Based on the photo, she finished the second semester with a general weighted average (GWA) of 1.45.
The young Kapamilya actress mentioned that she could not believe that she made it again in the dean’s list despite her tight schedule on her showbiz commitments, “I didn’t think I’d be able to achieve this again because of my crazy work schedule, but with God’s grace & guidance from my classmates and teachers, I feel victorious. thank you.”
It was back in March this year when she first announced that she was a dean’s lister, she received a General Weight Average (GWA) of 1.47 for the first semester of her sophomore year.
