Alec Brandon Chai Duñgo, one of the housemates of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Season 4, finished his Doctor of Medicine degree at the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Medicine and Surgery.
Duñgo, who also happens to be a registered pharmacist, graduated with flying colors as he finished Cum Laude and earned the Merittisimus recognition or "highest honors."
He made the announcement on Twitter and Instagram after finding out that he passed the Oral Revalida or the oral defense required before a student gets conferred with a medical degree.
Today, my childhood dream turned into reality. Today, I became a doctor. I would have never finished without the help of the Lord. You have blessed me so much by letting me go into med school and for helping me finish my last exam - with a bonus! Lord, You truly are amazing! 🙏🏻 To my family - papa, mama, kuya, and Bubut. I offer this humbling achievement to you. You are my inspiration. Thank you for helping me become the best version of myself, always. I share this accomplishment with my Dungo and Chai family, my relatives, and my friends who have always believed in me. To the professors, UST-FMS staff, residents, and interns that I have met and worked with throughout my med journey, thank you. To my patients, thank you for making me realize that it isn’t all about books. Thank you for teaching me to heal with compassion. You have inspired me to strive harder to become the best physician that I can be. To my revalida tribemates, Ina and Anna, and to our tribunal, Dra. Paliza, Dra. So, and Dr. Perez De Tagle - thank you for the experience of a lifetime.
