KC Concepcion likens university life to time in quarantine


KC Concepcion took to social media to reminisce on her time in Europe for her bachelor’s degree. She compared her university experience to her time now in quarantine. 

The 35-year-old actress and jewelry designer expressed her gratitude to her parents for sending her away to Paris for five years, during which she learned and adapted to a new place. She said her time alone remains to be an enormous part of who she is today.

In 2008, KC graduated from the American University of Paris, France with a degree in International Corporate Communications.

“Funny thing is, I feel like I’m back there now, thrown into something new, something unfamiliar, something different… and succeeding in the situations you find yourself in… as we all learn so much more about how to do LIFE in these bewildering times,” she wrote. 

KC said her time as a university student and this time as a “student of life” is alike in so many ways.

“How to do things, how to feel things, how to stay disciplined, how to manage your emotions, how to empathize, how to support yourself, not getting it right all the time, but staying this course and picking yourself back up again. Not knowing what the next thing is gonna be, but going with the flow and just doing it,” she shared. 

With everything she’s learned during her time alone, she added that everyone has inner work being done while everyone adapts to the “new normal.”
