LOOK: Carol Banawa becomes a registered nurse in US
Carol Banawa has finally achieved her dream of becoming a registered nurse.
Banawa, who now resides in the United States with her husband, Ryan Crisostomo, and their two children, said in an Instagram post on July 17 that she has officially joined the ranks of registered nurses. Her photo share contained the words “Today I am officially Carol Claire B. Crisostomo, RN.”
The singer previously received her certificate for completing the nursing program at the Northern Virginia Community College on May 12 through a pinning ceremony with her co-graduates. She also graduated summa cum laude.
Banawa left the Philippine music scene in 2003 to care for her father, who had been exposed to lethal levels of carbon monoxide. She would later settle down and pursue nursing in the US.
Although no longer active in the Philippines, Banawa still occasionally performs at a local establishment called Buko Resto Bar.
During her active years in the Philippine entertainment industry, Banawa became well known for such songs as “Iingatan Kita,” “Stay,” “Noon at Ngayon” and her version of Cliff Richard’s “Ocean Deep.” /ra
