This past August saw millions of students around the country return to schools once more with the reimplementation of face-to-face classes. It was welcome news for many as students finally left the confines of their home with online learning and went back to in-person school. And among many students who are finally back in classrooms, that also includes a few celebrities and personalities. Even with their busy showbiz and public careers, these stars still find the time to juggle all that and with their studies.
Just like many students, these stars have made their way back to the classroom as they further pursue their education and get that degree. And really, at the end of the day, they remind us that we are all the same and are happy to finally be back on school grounds. Here are just some local stars and personalities who are taking face-to-face classes.
If you thought that being a P-pop idol will have you set for the rest of your life, you thought wrong. Even your fave idols are prioritizing their education. One such idol is BGYO’s Akira who, along with BINI’s Aiah, recently began school at Enderun. And not only are they students at the prestigious college, they also received a full scholarship. Akira is currently taking up a degree in Multimedia Arts and has plans on getting that degree and finishing his studies.
Like Akira, BINI’s Aiah is another student at Enderun with a full scholarship. She and Akira were actually one of the five artists from Star Magic who received a scholarship to Enderun college after they passed the exam. P-pop idols with talent, smarts, and character, we love to see it. Aiah’s acceptance feels even better knowing that she considers Enderun as her dream school. As you can expect, Aiah and Akira being classmates has led to some playful banter between the two though it indeed is interesting if one of your classmates was a P-pop idol. But so far, being a P-pop idol in college seems to be quite fun.
Even if you are one of the biggest stars of the new generation, that shouldn’t stop you from getting that degree.
