Former child star CJ Navato just received his college degree from the College of Saint Benilde. The actor shared his special moment with his followers on his Instagram last Sunday, October 30.
The actor earned his degree in Culinary Arts.
“It’s official. Ya boi made it! 👨🏻🎓💚 Thank you to family for being with me every step of the way. This one’s for you, for God & for country. Always,” he wrote.
CJ revealed back in 2018 with an interview with PUSH that he found his passion in cooking after some soul searching. He recalled that he didn’t know back then what to do aside from acting and really wanted to study something else.
“Ang tagal ko na-realize kasi simula bata ako naging artista na ako so hindi ko alam yung gusto ko gawin talaga in the future until nagka-soul searching din talaga. I really want to be a chef. Naging mahilig din ako kasi nanunuod ako ng mga MasterChef, yung mga ganung cooking shows,” he shared.
“Actually ang tagal ng path ko to realizing kung ano talaga yung gusto ko gawin sa buhay ko. Nag-loook back pa ako sa past ko kung ano ginagawa ko, yung mga simula bata ako. Naalala ko yung sinasabi ng lola ko na, ‘You don’t overcook the egg, you can eat it malasado,’” he added.
