At the age of 20 years old, my mother had to pursue motherhood instead of pursuing her college degree. She migrated to America to find a better life. Mom left me with my grandparents so she can establish herself before finally taking me with her to America when I was 4yrs old. There were times when mom worked double jobs but she always found the time and energy to take good care of me and my sister. My mother always told me how important an education is. But like her, I had to pause my pursuit to advanced education at the age of 21 so I can work and provide for my children. At 22, I entered public service. I was elected number 1 kagawad in brgy Bf. At 24 , I entered showbiz and I performed in numerous shows on GMA 7. At 26 I decide to focus more on my public service career and I was elected again in 2007 as brgy captain. It was this time that I decided to quit showbiz to be able to give my all to serving brgy bf. When my term ended last 2018. I suddenly had more time for myself. So I decided to go back to school to be an example and to show that it’s never too late to pursue a college degree and to finish your studies. I felt it was the right thing to do to show my kids and those I serve that I truly believe in the importance of education. Today, I earned a BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION majored in Human Resource development management degree. Mommy, I hope I made you happy and proud today because I did this for you more than for myself. I know how much you dreamed of finishing your studies and even more so- seeing me graduate. you did great in raising me and teaching me the proper values in life. This fateful day, you and I graduated together because I could not have done this without your love and faith in me. Mahal na mahal ko po kayo Mommy!

On Instagram, the former actor and politician, who finished with a degree in Business Administration major in Human Resource Development Management, dedicated the said milestone to his mother who had since taught him the importance of education.

“My mother always told me how important an education is. But like her, I had to pause my pursuit to advanced education at the age of 21 so I can work and provide for my children,” he added.

Jeremy was 22 when he entered public service as Kagawad in Barangay BF Homes in Paranaque City. He then followed in the footsteps of his father in showbiz at 24, but decided to quit two years later to focus more on his public service career. It was then that he was elected as Barangay Captain in 2007.

“When my term ended last 2018, I suddenly had more time for myself,” he continued. “So I decided to go back to school to be an example and to show that it’s never too late to pursue a college degree and to finish your studies.

Currently, Jeremy is busy campaigning for his bid for the vice mayoralty post of Paranaque City.
