Singer Julie Anne San Jose is looking forward to a new chapter in her life as she graduated from college recently.
The 22-year-old San Jose graduated from Angelicum College in Quezon City, majoring in Communication Arts. She admitted that finishing her degree while managing a singing career resulted in “sleepless nights, fatigue and even disappointments.”
“I’ve realized it’s okay to admit I wasn’t perfect, I was struggling. I’ve juggled work and studies, yet managed to survive,” she wrote as the caption to her graduation photo she shared to her more than 500,000 followers on Instagram.
“As I went through four and a half years, I’ve learned that it pays not to worry so much about where you ranked but rather think about the joy you get with what you do.
“Life doesn’t offer us a smooth path. There will always be tough times, regrets and failures as well as success, reward and happiness,” San Jose added.
“It’s been a long road but with hard work and patience, anything is possible. This is certainly a huge milestone. The tassel’s worth the hassle,” she concluded.
A MYX favorite, San Jose has released four studio albums under her belt. Her cover of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” has more than 20 million views on YouTube—the singer’s most viewed video to date.
She also delved into acting, appearing in a handful of films and several television shows. (MNS)
