MANILA – Despite her hectic work schedule, Kim Chiu has decided to go back to school to finish her college degree.
This was revealed by Giselle Sanchez in her Manila Bulletin column, which was published on its website on Tuesday.
Sanchez said she recently saw Chiu during an event in Ilocos and that the actress told her that she has enrolled in the University of the Philippines (UP) Open University, taking up business management.
“I am so happy I got accepted in UP Diliman, I took the entrance exams last August and passed and I have already enrolled. I chose business management because I own several business franchises including Julie’s Bakeshop and Potato Corner. My sister Lakam has been managing these for some time now but I want to try and manage one myself someday, like a restaurant or something,” Chiu said.
In the same article, Chiu also credited her father, who is a known businessman in Mindoro.
“Marami ng business tinayo tatay ko. I cannot recall anymore which ones were successful and which ones failed, basta marami. Meron rice mill, piggery, sibuyasan, clothes, kambingan, talyer, manukan…’yung bakery niya, ’yun talaga ang nag-boom. All my relatives are into different kind of businesses, it’s in our blood, I guess,” she said.
