Vivoree graduates from high school
Of course, the former reality show star shared her new milestone on Instagram. In her caption, she shared her struggles while balancing her time as an actress and as a student.
“This journey and I had a love-hate relationship; it was never easy. With all the other things I did for my career habang hinahabol ‘yung deadline sa homework, natutulala na lang ako minsan sa kakaisip kung ano ba ang uunahin ko. Napa ‘ayoko na’ at ‘bahala na’ na lang ako.
Hindi ko naman akalaing malalagpasan ko rin pala ‘to. Pero honestly, I would NEVER have made it if it weren’t for the people who helped me throughout the school years. Napaka understanding and considerate ng mga teachers ko sa CFA, ang pamilya ko— na malaking motivation ko—at barkada ko na tanggap pa rin ako maka graduate man o hindi,” Vivoree said.
Vivoree felt emotional
Well, just like any graduating student, Vivoree felt emotional when her name was called during the virtual ceremony.
“Alam n’yo, gabi-gabi ko sinabi kay Lord na nahirapan na ako tas may sabay pang iyak ‘yun haha tas sabi ko sa Kanya, ‘Lord, Kayo na po bahala’ tapos ayun nga. Nairaos din ang 2 years of uncertainty ko. Naiyak ako nung tinawag pangalan ko kasi ang hirap para sa’kin emotionally at mentally ‘yung napagdaanan ko, hindi kahanga-hanga ‘yung pagiging unmotivated ko minsan, at pakiramdam ko, ‘ hindi ko naman siguro deserve ‘to’. Naisip ko na lang na para sa mga taong tumulong sakin ang success na ‘to.”
At the latter part, she said she is getting ready for bigger challenges of her life.
“Tsaka syempre kasabay na dun ‘yung laking pasasalamat ko kay Lord kasi hindi Nya talaga ako pinabayaan. Alam ko namang hindi pa dito nagtatapos ang kalbaryo kasi may college life pa. Pero gusto ko lang ibahagi sa inyo ‘to para malaman ninyo na hindi kayo nag-iisa. Basta Lord, sisipagan ko na po talaga sa susunod na kabanata hehe ALL GLORY IS YOURS!” she ended.
