Jodi Sta. Maria continues to be an inspiration to her fans as she successfully ends her school year with a GPA of 3.800 in her pre-med studies.
The ABS-CBN actress visibly emotional when Southville International School and Colleges announced she topped the Dean's List this semester.
Jodi went back to school to pursue a college degree last February 2017. She said she never let go of her dream to earn a degree (she is taking up BS Psychology). It was a desire that fueled her to take the plunge even though it meant she had to work harder at a time when she can actually take it easy.
Jodi Sta. Maria looks back at her journey as a student
On Instagram, the Sana Dalawa ang Puso lead actress wrote, “These past years of taking up a pre-med course has molded me, trained me, tested me...but here I am almost at the end of the race as I finish my last year of undergrad studies.
“I’ve played many roles in my life — an actor, daughter and most importantly being a mother. But being a student had me seeking out one of the most important gifts from God — the chance to pursue my BS Psychology degree.
“Each subject I had was an opportunity to develop myself and achieve new accomplishments. With every challenge and experience, God prepared me and taught me to run my race without quitting. I have learned to be receptive to the whole process, more aware of what I am learning and why.
