Aside from taping episodes for her upcoming romantic series Got to Believe, Kathryn Bernardo said she is also busy focusing on her studies as a Marketing major freshman at Enderun Colleges. “Ayun, malapit na yung midterms namin! Super nag-e-enjoy po ako,” she shared.
The 17-year-old actress said she enjoys being treated like a regular student whenever she is in school. “Actually hindi naman masyado napapansin lalo na sa mga classmates ko. Hindi naman nila ako binibigyan ng special treatment, wala namang ganun. Feeling ko normal student lang ako pag Saturday. Kilala yung school for culinary but they also offer marketing and then yun ang kinukuha kong course,” she said.
Kath said there is definitely no celebrity treatment on their campus. “Parang no naman. Parang wala namang ganun. Hindi naman pumapasok yung mga fans sa school. Pag taping nga, yung mga fans na-e-excite rin sila para sa akin dahil sa schooling ko. Nagiging normal college girl ako,” she shared.
Despite her hectic work schedule, Kath said she still wants to prioritize her studies after putting them on hold for Princess and I. “Kinakaya ko pa naman siya. Basta pag Tuesdays after ng morning class ko puwede na akong dumiretso from work and then pag Saturdays as in blocked off for my school lang the whole day. Wini-work out naman with production yung schedule so okay lahat sila tumutulong para mapagsabay ko yung school ko with my work. Kinakaya ko pa naman siya ngayon,” she said.
Even though she does not get to go out as much, Kath said she is happy to be pursuing her studies again. She says going on “gimiks” have to take a backseat for now. “Wala na eh, actually M-W-F sched yun for my taping and then yung iba dun Tuesday or Thursday for my shooting for Pagpag (her upcoming MMFF horror film with Daniel Padilla under Star Cinema) then Saturday sa school ako tapos Sundays naman ASAP so wala ng time talaga, she explained.
When it comes to her finances, Kath said she is lucky to always have her mom Min Bernardo by her side to put aside her earnings for her education and future investments. “Yung mom ko nag-ha-handle ng money ko kasi ako hindi ko pa rin kaya na ako lang. Pero sinisigurado naman niya na meron din akong allowance for my shopping or for kung ano yung gusto ko. Pero hindi naman yung parati. Yung pag you work hard for it, may reward ka, ganyan. And my mom naman talaga, siya yung nag-aasikaso ng lahat ng kinikita ko kaya super sure ako na safe naman siya. Hindi rin naman ako yung parang pag may nakita ako bibilhin ko na agad siya kahit pricey yung isang bagay. Ayun, kailangan talaga pag-isipan lalo na ngayon na aware ako na mahirap kitain ang pera (laughs),” she admitted.
