LOOK: Giselle Sanchez’s daughter finishes junior high, bags school awards
Giselle Sanchez expressed her immense joy as her daughter Lia Buencamino finished junior high school and bagged two academic awards.
The comedienne shared her daughter’s milestone in an Instagram post last Wednesday, April 3. Buencamino finished junior high school at the Saint Pedro Poveda College in Quezon City, and was joined by her mom, dad Emil and younger brother Xavier during her moving up ceremony.
“Dear [Lia], today you made me so proud of you graduating [junior high] with two academic awards!” Sanchez said. She also stated that one of Lia’s awards was ironically from her Spanish subject, which Lia dreaded.

Hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala na may anak na akong nakapagtapos ng Junior High School at may 2 academic awards pa (Swipe left ◀️ ). 2 taon pa at makakatapos ka na ng Senior High School sa #kto12program ng #Poveda . Naging scholar At honor student ako sa Poveda at magna cum laude at school valedictorian sa U.P. diliman dahil sabi ng nanay ko, ang edukasyon lang ang maibibigay nila sa akin pagtanda nila. Salamat at tinularan mo ako at ang iyong ama na nakapagtapos with honors sa #philippinesciencehighschool at @unibersidadngpilipinas Lubos kong ikinagagalak ang iyong tagumpay anak kong @liabuencamino ! Shameless plugs: @fitfoodmanila for my diet
“Hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala na may anak na akong nakapagtapos ng Junior High School at may 2 academic awards pa,” Sanchez said.
(I still cannot believe that I have a daughter who not only finished junior high school, but also bagged two academic awards.)
Sanchez, who was an honor student herself at the same school, remembered what her own mother told her: “Edukasyon lang ang mabibigay nila sa akin pagtanda nila.”
(Education is the only thing they can give me as they grow old.)
Aside from being an honor student at Poveda, Sanchez graduated magna cum laude from the University of the Philippines-Diliman with a degree in BA Broadcast Communication.
As a way to treat her daughter, Sanchez took her for a vacation at Lakawon Island in Cadiz, Negros Occidental.

I never pressured you to have high grades or be a an athlete in track and field. I was more after your heart to be pure and loving, being constructive and not destructive to others and the environment. Love God and be kind to others. When your heart is full of love, everything just follows and flows through. Thank you for giving me bonuses and performing well in school. You deserve this vacation. I love you @liabuen !
Way to go, Lia! JB
