She has a platinum album to her name, and has performed in front of a sold-out crowd at Araneta Coliseum. 

But for Morissette, none of those highs could compare to the pride she felt after finally moving up from junior high school.

She shared the news on Instagram Friday, recalling the time she dropped out of her school in Cebu to pursue her dreams of becoming a singer in Manila. 

"But now there's today," Morissette wrote, posting a photo of her gaining her certificate of completion from Don Alejandro Roces Sr. Science and Technology High School. 

She was part of the school's "alternative learning system," which, she explained, allowed her to continue her studies despite her busy schedule as a recording artist. 

"Mahirap man i-juggle lahat but balance is key," she said. "Pero mas lalo po akong na-inspire sa mga batchmates ko who each had their own stories to tell, and have also reached this achievement."

"Tulad po ng sinabi ko kanina sa speech (akalain niyo uuuun.. mas kinabahan po ako kanina kesa sa mga contests na nasalihan ko HAHA), 'the possibilities are endless!'" she added.
