Jodi Sta.Maria intends to go to college while working


050711-jodi-main.jpgAfter she got her high school diploma, Jodi Sta.maria revealed during a recent visit to the set of 100 Days To Heaven that she intends to pursue her college degree and take up Medical Biology. She added that she hopes that in 10 years time, she would’ve earned her medical degree and still be acting at the same time.

Though she is excited to become a college this coming school year, Jodi is also bracing herself for the challenges of juggling school and work at the same time. “Sobrang excited na ako i-announce, sobrang excited na rin ako makapasok sa school sa June. Alam nating hindi madali kasi ‘yun ‘yung challenge para sa akin na matapos [ang pag-aaral] kasi alam kong hindi magiging madali.”  Jodi added that she will not leave showbiz even if she fulfills her dream to become a doctor.

Many critics say that Jodi is an underrated actress because she is not a constant winner in awards-giving bodies despite her superb acting skills. “Siguro the right project na lang din [that would really showcase my acting prowess] will come ‘yun na lang ‘yon. Okay na rin naman sa akin ‘yon. Basta I get to do things that I want to do, kumbaga, bonus na lang din ‘yung recognition,” she said.

The proud mom also added that it is okay if her son Thirdy decides to enter showbiz when he grows up, although she added quickly that she wants him to finish his studies.

For Mother’s Day this Sunday, May 8, Jodi shared that  still needs to work although she and Thirdy will have a date afterwards. “Siguro kakain lang kami sa labas. Dadalhin ko siya sa playhouse or amusement center. Makita ko naman siya na masaya [at] nage-enjoy, okay na okay [na ako].”
