Liza Soberano: "Dapat maka-graduate ako kasi I think that’s the best gift you can give to your parents."
Liza Soberano confessed that she actually feels regretful that she has not experienced a normal college life.
"My best friend, kaka-graduate lang and I have one who is still in college. So 'yung mga best friends ko kapag nagkukuwentuhan kami, sila lang 'yung nakaka-relate sa isa’t isa because I didn’t get to experience the normal. When I think about it, nanghihinayang ako,” she said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
The actress said that she has her share of "what ifs" when it comes to her education. "Pero at the same time, I am lucky na I get to work. Pero parang iniisip ko din na what if nakapag-college ako and I got to experience all the hardships that they go through in college and the satisfaction of actually graduating,” she stated.
Though she didn't experience college like her peers experienced it, Liza still chose to enroll in college through a special program that would fit her busy schedule as an actress. She decided to pursue higher education because it was her grandfather's wish for her to graduate.

“I remember also, I was doing ‘She’s the One’ when I was taking my entrance exams. It was our last day and I wasn’t able to take one of my entrance exams. I remember I was crying because I really wanted to go to college. Until now, it’s still a dream of mine. Well, I’m in college right now but it was also a dream of mine to graduate. Because my lolo, he always made me promise na kahit na artista ako, dapat maka-graduate ako kasi I think that’s the best gift you can give to your parents,” she stated.
