In spite of her crazy showbiz schedule, teen star Kim Chiu has put studies on top of her priority list this year.
The Kapamilya actress told ABS-CBN.com in a recent interview that she has enrolled in a home study program in a school in Parañaque.
“Once a week lang ako papasok and binibigyan nila ako ng modules. Ngayon lang kasi ako bumalik after four years so fourth year high school muna ako ngayon,” she related.
Prior to becoming a star, Kim was a student at the Cebu Cherish School. She is said to be an active student, having joined declamation and dance contests. Kim also excelled in Chinese.
Going back to school was something Kim had been aching to do. It was her “barkada,” the Chiurigogobaschu girls, who encouraged her to hit the books once again.
“Nag-usap-usap kami na sabay-sabay kaming mag-first year college para magka-classmates kami nila Melissa at Empress,” Kim said.
Chiurigogobaschu is composed of Kim, “Pinoy Big Brother” fellow Teen Edition housemate Beauty Gonzales, “Star Circle Quest” alumni Melissa Ricks and Erich Gonzales, comedienne Kitkat and “Rosalka” lead star Empress Schuck.
