Showbiz personalities have different roots and beginnings. Some may have come from a clan of artists already, while some may have really worked hard to gain a reputation in the industry. Thirdly, some may have just pursued their passion after fulfilling their academic obligations. Whatever the case may be, it does not matter, because they all made it to stardom. The only advantage if one graduated from a good university like AdMU is that they are well-cultured and well-prepared to face the complicated world of showbizness. Here’s a list of local celebrities who had that one step ahead of the race, as they have graduated from the prestigious school Ateneo de Manila University.
Popularly known as the “Queen of All Media”, Kris definitely has established a very good name and reputation in the industry. Although she has travelled a different path from her parents and siblings (which were mostly politicians), she has made quite an image. Today, she is not only a multi-awarded actress and entrepreneur, but also a happy mom of two healthy kids, Josh and Bimby. All these successes and triumphs, she said would not be possible if she did not entered a college under one great school which is Ateneo de Manila University. It was 1992 when she finished her degree AB English Literature. She said that all the learnings and experiences she had at that school has shaped her in any way possible.
Nikki is among the many talented VJs/Singers in the country. Through her 10 long years of stay in the industry, she has made her name well-respected and admired by many. It was in 1993 when she first entered showbizness, but she went on hiatus from 2000 to 2005 to pursue her studies first. Being a returnee to a space where people forgets easily, she reintroduced herself in the commercial of a soda product. From then on, she has gained her stability back. But alongside being in showbiz, Nikki also pursued her college at Ateneo de Manila University as a student of AB English Literature. She graduated in 2009. Today, she is a well-known VJ and a happy wife to BJ Albert whom she married last November 2015.
