Singer Gerphil Flores posted on her Facebook account last June 24 that she has finally received her diploma from the University of the Philippines.
Gerphil graduated with two degrees, a diploma in Creative Performing Musical Arts and Bachelor of Music, where she received the honor of Cum Laude.
She is very thankful for all the experiences she had in the span of six years in the College of Music, including her joining Asia’s Got Talent and performing with celebrities in the country and abroad. She also gave thanks for all those who supported her, giving special thanks to her mother and father.
“Lord, thank you! I can finally harvest what I've planted since 2010. In a span of 6 years, I am overjoyed to announce that I finished two degrees (Diploma in Creative Performing Musical Arts & Bachelor of Music- Cum Laude) at The College of Music, University of the Philippines Diliman.
Although it wasn't always a smooth ride, I am truly blessed with all the experiences I had as an undergraduate student including my Asia's Got Talent stint as I not only represented my country but also my beloved university.
“Of course, none of these beautiful experiences would have happened without the undying love and support of my family, mentors and friends. Mom, thank you for everything. People often say you're too protective because they always see you with me and sometimes, they see your "mataray" side but what they don't know is that you are just protecting me.
“Dad, selbst wenn du in Hamburg bist, bin ich für die Inspiration noch dankbar.
“To my mentors, thank you for unselfishly sharing your knowledge in music and for honing my craft.
This triumph is not mine but yours!”
