EXCLUSIVE: Awra Briguela reveals Coco Martin is currently sponsoring his education

 

Aside from Ang Probinsyano and Wansapanataym Amazing Ving, Awra is also busy working on the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival entry Ang Panday. The child star shared with PUSH what his fans should look forward to in his role in the film.

“Happy naman din sa Panday dahil sobrang ganda rin ng story niya. From the start nong napasok ako sa Probinsyano, lalaki na tinatago ko ‘yung katangian ko. Dito mauulit ‘yun pero napakadaming twist na magaganap na sobrang matatawa ka,” he said.


Awra is thankful to Coco Martin, the lead star and the director of the movie, for giving him the opportunity to be part it.

Super happy kasi kahit ano na ang dami na naming bata, siymepre ba naman ikaw ba hindi ka ba magiging masaya, napakadami mo ng nakasamang bata pero sinasama ka pa rin niya. ‘Yung parang lahat kayo pantay-pantay na aalagaan ko, di ko kayo pababayaan. Iyon ‘yung nararamdaman ko na kung gaano kami ka-mahal ni kuya Coco kaya happy ako kasi di niya talaga ako pinabayaan,” he said.

Despite his success as a child star in show business, Awra is still determined to finish his studies. Awra revealed that Coco is sending him to school now.

“Napakasaya ko rin na si kuya Coco ang nagpapa-aral sa akin sa AMA. Homestudy po, si kuya Coco po ang nag-sponsor sa akin. Lahat kaming bata sa Probinsyano binigyan niya. ‘Yung tatlong taga-Cebu sa Angelicum niya pinasok, ako sa AMA kasi ano na ako eh grade 8 na ako kailangan mga computer [lessons] na,” he said.

Awra said that he wants to earn a college degree in the future. “Lahat naman tayo kahit naman gaano ka pa kayaman kailangan mo pa rin makapagtapos kasi napakalaking karangalan talaga iyon. Sa lahat ng maa-achieve mo wala ‘yun kung nakapagtapos ka ng pag-aaral,” he said.
