MANILA – Miss Universe 2010 fourth runner-up Venus Raj has completed her master’s degree in Community Development from the University of the Philippines.
On Instagram on Thursday, Raj posted her graduation picture wearing the traditional UP sablay. In the caption, she thanked everyone “who became instruments in making this journey possible.”
“From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I can never boast of this moment. This is all by the grace of God,” she said.
Raj also has a message to her fellow graduates.
“Let us still consider ourselves students of this life. Never stop learning. When we stop learning, we stop growing. There are far more lessons that we have to discover. Don't be afraid of the process, God is with you,” she said.
Raj earned her bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts at the Bicol University.
After her stint at the Miss Universe pageant, Raj went on to become a television host until she took a break to finish her graduate studies.
