Korina Sanchez graduates from Ateneo master's program


MANILA, Philippines — It's never too late to get that master's degree.

Korina Sanchez finished her master's degree in journalism and marched at their graduation ceremony at the Ateneo De Manila University in Quezon City on June 26.

Despite her heavy schedule being top broadcast personality on ABS-CBN and helping his husband, former presidential candidate Mar Roxas, in his campaign, Korina managed to pursue the course under the Konrad Adenauer Program.

Korina shared some photos on her graduation day:


Sa wakas nakasuot narin ng costume.

His husband was also there to support her.


A few weeks ago, Korina admitted on a social media post that she was tempted to drop out from her classes, but she decided not to. She said it has always been her dream to pursue academic excellence and walk in a toga to get her diploma. 

“A few years ago I had an inkling we were going through this whole political exercise again and my mind kept racing in all directions foreseeing the drastic changes in my life all over again. To keep my head straight, I thought to focus on something productive. And that was school. I'm happy I did it,” she said in an interview with ABS-CBN.

Korina started working as a reporter before she graduated under the program AB Communication Arts. Sunday was her first time she walked in a toga to get her diploma. — Alixandra Caole Vila
