35-year-old ‘Kadenang Ginto’ star Dimples Romana revealed in a recent interview that she still wants to return to regular school and earn a college degree.
Despite the fact that she already gained success in her showbiz career and being a businesswoman. The celebrity mom-of-two admitted that she wants to pursue her dream to finish her studies and received a college diploma.
Recently, the ‘Kadenang Ginto’ star received another blessing after she was launched as the new brand ambassador for JuanLife Personal Accident Insurance of Agile Insurance Agency and Business Technologies.
In a recent interview with the entertainment website PUSH, Dimples shared that she has tried many times to go back to schooling, but every time she will do so, a new project will be offered to her.
She said: “Alam mo, it’s always my frustration to finish my studies kasi when I came back to Enderun, that was around the time I thought I could finish it. But then One More Chance came along, and it was such a big role that I couldn’t pass it up.
“Pero ang saya lang because I got to have good friends sa network, tsaka ang maganda natuto rin ako ng pagsasalita. Yung pagluluto dati natuto ako sa kusina, mas technical na ngayon kasi naturuan na ako. Yung Tourism naman, yung mga lifetime friends ko coming from UST lahat.”
The Kapamilya actress previously took a Tourism course at the University of Sto. Tomas (UST), she studied there for almost three years, then she decided to shift into a Culinary course at Enderun. But unfortunately, she was still not able to finish her second course.
In the same report, Dimples clarified that it’s her choice not to finish her studies back then because she prioritized the studies of her other siblings.
“Alam mo, nagkaroon ako ng choice noon. Ito kasi ang nangyari diyan, eh, patapos yung kapatid ko noon ng Nursing, and as you know, kahit nagkapamilya na ako, napakabait ng asawa ko dahil hinahayaan niya akong magbigay pa rin sa pamilya ko.
“May college pa kasi akong kapatid, eh, so may mga pagkakataon na uunahin mo yung pagiging ate mo. So, dahil alam ko na nung nag-i-school ako mahihirapan kami na mapag-aral ng Nursing yung kapatid ko kaya siya muna yung sinuportahan ko,” Dimples continued.
When asked on when she plans to study again, the Kapamilya actress replied,
“Actually, yan ang next phase ko, kaya lang ang problema, bago ako matapos ng teleserye, may teleserye na ako ulit na gagawin.”
For the meantime, she’s just checking what are the options she has, since going back to school will require more of her time, “Actually, nagbalik nga po ako ng UST, tsinek ko rin sa mga dean ko, kaya lang don kasi kailangan talaga per pack, so kailangan talaga may block ako.
“Hindi nawawala sa plano ko ang mag-aral. Ano lang, parang siguro gusto ko lang munang i-secure yung mga kapatid ko. Iisa na lang naman ang nag-aaral sa amin,” she
She went on to share that the reason why she doesn’t want to consider enrolling in an Open University is that she enjoys having many friends in a regular school set up.
“Sabi nga ng asawa ko, ‘You want to start now (studying)?’ Kaya lang sabi ko, the reason why I don’t want to go sa Open University because ang gusto ko sana ay yung pumapasok talaga sa school. Gusto ko yung ganun kasi na-enjoy ko yon, eh, nagkaroon ako ng maraming kaibigan,” Dimples explained.
But if she will be given the time to pursue her studies in the future, Dimples said that she is planning to take up a business management course, which is something that she can use since she already ventured into the business world.
