Alex Gonzaga attests that a busy schedule shouldn’t stop a celebrity from getting a degree.
The young TV5 princess is overjoyed upon receiving a diploma for Education Major in Child Development at the University of Asia and the Pacific recently. She noticed, however, that she is yet to undergo on-the-job training (OJT).
“Masaya ako sa accomplishment ko! Pero hindi pa po talaga ako magtuturo kasi hindi pa ako nakapag-OJT, although may diploma naman ako. Meron pa akong 9 unitsna kukunin para makapagturo. Pero hopefully, ‘pag nagkaroon ng time, matapos ko, kasi gusto ko talaga magtayo ng school,” she uttered in a recent interview.
Although she hasn’t taken a licensure examination yet, Alex pointed out, “…’yung school namin, ‘yung pinag-aralan ko po, ay may subject kami na tinuturuan ka rin kung paano magtayo ng school. Business course, at the same time… educators.”
Alex admitted that teaching has always been a passion and a dream for her.
“Gusto ko talaga maging teacher ng mga bata. Gusto ko pa nga noon, high school ang turuan. Dati nung bata ako, gumagawa pa ako ng lesson plan,” she said.
Pinty Gonzaga, Alex’s mother and manager, believes that it is fit for Alex to teach pre-school, “para makapag-start daw kami sa paggawa ng school.” she said.
“Di ba, ‘pag nag-start ng school, mag-i-start sa pre-school, habang nagtatagal, padagdag nang padagdag na lang ng grades kada taon? ‘Yun ‘yung plano,” she added.
Alex, however, will not set aside her showbiz obligations. She’ve been asked about her post-graduate plans, the TV host-actress said, “Sa TV5 muna, kasi under contract ako sa kanila. Kung ano po ‘yung ibibigay sa akin ng TV5, of course, open ako doon. Pero sana, magamit ko rin ‘yung pinag-aralan ko.”
Will Alex make more time for her love life since she already graduated? The young princess was spotted with her reported former boyfriend, Kean Cipriano at the Manila concert of pop-rock group Hanson last March 30, 2012.
She were, nevertheless, quick to dismiss rumors that they’re back together, emphasizing they are only friends.
“In-invite niya lang po ako dito… para nga manood nitong concert ng Hanson. Paborito ko kasi ang Hanson kaya ayun, inaya niya ako manood,” said Alex.
