Dingdong Dantes among March 2014 grads
Actor Dingdong Dantes has completed his Techno Management course at West Negros University in Bacolod City, putting him in the list of those who will be receiving their school diplomas this month.
The 32-year-old heartthrob returned to school last year, after his studies were disrupted in 1998.
“Sabi ko talaga, kailangang dumating ‘yung pagkakataon kung saan talagang matatapos ko siya. And finally… after so many years when I started in 1998 in college, matatapos na rin siya sa wakas,” he told members of the press in a report aired on “24 Oras.”
Dingdong hopes to serve as an inspiration for others to finish school. He believes that there’s always a need to learn and improve at any age.
“Siyempre naman, we’re advocating for education, so we should also practice what we preach,” he added.
The Kapuso prized talent admitted that he rarely traveled to Bacolod, finishing most of his school works at home.
Earlier, Dingdong took Philosophy and Human Resource Development at San Beda College. He also took Interdisciplinary Studies and Communication Art courses at the Ateneo de Manila University.
Meanwhile, Dingdong dismissed speculations that he is preparing to run for public office in 2016.
“Wala namang ganong salita. Ang sa akin, let’s just do our job right and para sa atin, lahat naman tayo citizens, we have to do something also,” he said.
