MANILA – Zephanie Dimaranan, the first winner of “Idol Philippines,” celebrated her moving up day on Sunday.
Sharing photos of herself in a blue toga on Instagram, Dimaranan thanked all her teachers who have been supportive and considerate of her.
Dimaranan also expressed her gratitude for her friends and family for helping her along the way.
Addressing her fellow students, the young singer said: “To all of my fellow students, congratulations! This is a new chapter in our lives. Good luck to us. I will miss you all and hope to see you next s.y!”
Dimaranan is currently studying at the Alpha Angelicum Academy in Biñan, Laguna.
In a previous interview with StarStudio, Dimaranan said she is still determined to finish her education while pursuing her singing career.
“Gusto ko po sana maging doctor someday. Pero sa ngayon, iniisip ko pa kung i-pu-pursue ko pa rin ‘yun. Dahil medyo mahirap pagsabayin ‘yung course ng medicine sa career ko. Kahit medyo busy, gagawan namin ng paraan na makapag-continue po ako kahit online. Kapag hindi po ako natuloy sa medicine, mag bu-business na lang po ako,” she said.
“Kahit wala akong career sa singing, may maitutulong pa ako sa family ko. Kaya gusto ko mag-aral ng medicine kasi, alam ko na makakatulog ako sa kanila,” she added.
