Jhong Hilario has finished college with flying colors at the age of 46.
The It’s Showtime host and Makati councilor graduated magna cum laude from the Arellano University with a degree in Political Science.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, Jhong expressed pride in fulfilling his parents’ dream for him.
“Ito ‘yung bayad ko sa utang ko sa mga magulang ko,” Jhong was quoted as saying in the report.
He continued, “Lahat ng parents gustong makatapos ng pag-aaral ang mga anak nila, and lahat ginagawa nila, nagtatrabaho sila ng marangal para makapag-paaral ng mga anak and ito na ‘yun, kahit na late na at the age of forty six at least buhay pa ‘yung parents ko.”
The Streetboy member, who’s also dubbed as “Sample King”, also left an inspirational message to those who have yet to finish their studies.
“Sa lahat ng gustong makapagtapos ng pag-aaral kahit late na katulad ko, meron talagang pagkakataon at paraan para gawin ito kahit na busy tayo, time management lang. For me, napakaiksi ng buhay para walang gawin eh,” he stated.
