Actress Julia Montes has revealed the reason she decided to go back to school.
In her latest Instagram post, Julia revealed that she is studying to become a restaurateur as she thanked her school, Southville International School and Colleges, for helping her achieve her dream of putting up her own restaurant.
"Who said you can't wear uniforms? Studying while having the luxury of having my fave coffee. Thank you @southville_is for helping me step by step [towards] achieving my dream on putting up my own restaurant. Looking forward every time I have classes," she said.
It was in September when Julia announced that she had gone back to school amid the pandemic.
"This is how I turn a crisis into an opportunity, doing things I've always wanted now that I have the luxury of time," she wrote in a post.
Julia, 25, is a graduate of a culinary school.
It was in 2015 when she finished her culinary course from the Center of Culinary Arts Manila, whose graduates include her fellow actresses Bea Alonzo and Yam Concepcion.
Prior to the lockdown due to the pandemic, it was already announced that Julia will star in a new series, Burado, with Nadine Lustre. However, the project was officially cancelled in August due to prevailing COVID-19 restrictions.
The “pre-pandemic concept” of the series, producer Dreamscape said, involves filming action-packed scenes in international locations—including Thailand, Cambodia, and India—which is “difficult to mount at this time.”
