After passing the entrance exams to her dream university in the country, teen actress and singer Angelina Cruz shares her experience as a college freshman doing online learning at De la Salle University.
“Because of the pandemic, we had to start doing online learning through our laptops, phones, and iPads; we do that to attend classes. And I can say that the first few months have been difficult for me to get used to things especially since face-to-face is very different from online learning. But I can say that now I am getting used to it, I’m getting more comfortable with online learning because I guess things are more lenient and I get to balance my studies and work more with online learning,” she shared during her launch as a new Silka endorser last February 4.
The 19-year-old showbiz newbie who is also the eldest daughter of Cesar Montano and Sunshine Cruz admitted there are a lot of distractions to learning for her while at home.
“Honestly, para sa akin I get distracted really easily especially when I’m around my sisters because they’re super kulit. So what I do to not get easily distracted is to learn how to isolate myself in the room and to make myself focus. Usually how I do that is to keep my headphones on and listen to music so I get to focus on my task,” she explained.
As part of the cast of a new TV5 sitcom John En Ellen, Angelina said she is enjoying the whole experience including lock-in taping in her first ever TV project.
“My whole experience with the cast was very fun. They treated me like family. The whole show is very light kasi it’s a sitcom so we all treat each other just like family kasi it’s a family sitcom. When my mom heard about my offer for the sitcom, she told me to go with it and since I have nothing else to do during the pandemic, I might as well be productive,” she said.
