Dingdong Dantes earns college degree-A A +A
Tuesday, March 25, 2014
KAPUSO Primetime King Dingdong Dantes has recently earned his degree in Techno Management at West Negros University in Bacolod City.
The actor, accompanied by his parents, attended the commencement exercises on Sunday, March 23.
"It is not enough to know what your goal is. You must also know how to chase it, and chase it real damn well," he wrote on Instagram.
Dingdong went back to school in 2012 after he decided to stop in 1998 because of showbiz commitments.
"Kailangan ng tao talaga ang constant strive for learning. Maraming mga bagay na akala mo alam mo na, pero mas maganda palagi na, alam mo, knowing that it's always half the battle at hindi dapat binabalewala ang edukasyon," he said in an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal.
The 33-year-old is a strong advocate of education and established YesPinoy Foundation in 2009. The non-government organization focuses on providing full college scholarships to sons and daughters of fallen Philippine Marine soldiers.
Last month, the actor and long-term girlfriend Marian Rivera visited Loakan Elementary School in Baguio City to hand out school bags and other supplies to 300 grade school students.
He was also in Davao last week to distribute new school gears to pupils of Zonta Elementary School. (Sunnex)
