She may have walked away from show business, but Carol Banawa showed that she is happy to take on a different path.

The former singer showed that hard work does pay off as she is set to attain her nursing degree in the United States. Not only that, she is also graduating summa cum laude.


Her latest achievement was shared by music manager David Cosico on his Facebook account on Friday. To show his appreciation, Cosico jokingly spelled summa cum laude as “Carol Banawa Crisostomo.”


She shared back in September 2017 her journey to become a registered nurse. In this photo, she expressed how excited she was to be assigned in the operating room for clinicals. She said: “Felt like a kid in a toy store so excited and eager to see more!”

Was assigned to the OR yesterday for clinicals. OR is definitely one of my top 3 choices! 😍 I was so giddy all day! My feet were killing me from standing and walking around the whole time but the stuff that I got to witness and observe was so worth it! I saw a Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve, Panniculectomy and a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy 😍 I got to touch an actual piece of the stomach taken out and also the gallbladder with a huge stone inside. I got to see how everything looked on the inside..I felt like a kid in a toy store so excited and eager to see more! 😍 It was awesome! Thank you God for such an exciting and insipiring day! 😊 #grateful #inspired #dreamer #futurern #roadtorn #reachforthestars
