Anne Curtis, arguably the biggest female superstar today, was reminded of one of her "biggest insecurities" as she chanced upon old readings for her college degree, which she was unable to finish as it took a backseat because of the demands of her career.
In her Instagram stories Tuesday, the 33-year-old actress shared snaps of documents from Griffith University, a public research university in South East Queensland, Australia.
"Packing," she wrote, "and I found this. Makes me want to study again."
Curtis was reported in 2013 to have enrolled in an education program through Open Universities Australia, which includes Griffith University as one of the institutions available for online studies. At the time, she said she was hoping to finish college with an early childhood education degree, to fulfill her dream of being a pre-school teacher.
Three years later, in 2016, she authored and published a children's book, "Anita the Duckling Diva," which she said was in line with that aspiration.

Since then, however, Curtis has not given updates on her studies. That is, until Tuesday, when she admitted being "so sad" that she did not finish her program.
"Used to be one of my biggest insecurities — that I haven't finished college. But hey, I'm happy that I'm doing something that I love and I am passionate about... I do admit though, it's still one of my biggest dreams to graduate from college," she wrote.
Curtis, whose latest film "Sid & Aya" was recently released to rave reviews and box-office success, remains among the most in-demand stars in local showbiz. She juggles being a mainstay of ABS-CBN's flagship noontime program "It's Showtime," numerous endorsement shoots and appearances, filming for at least two more big-screen projects, and preparations for her upcoming major solo concert, among others.
