[kind of LONG caption ahead] This journey and I had a love-hate relationship; it was never easy. With all the other things I did for my career habang hinahabol ‘yung deadline sa homework, natutulala na lang ako minsan sa kakaisip kung ano ba ang uunahin ko. Napa ‘ayoko na’ at ‘bahala na’ na lang ako. Hindi ko naman akalaing malalagpasan ko rin pala ‘to. Pero honestly, I would NEVER have made it if it weren’t for the people who helped me throughout the school years. Napaka understanding and considerate ng mga teachers ko sa CFA, ang pamilya ko— na malaking motivation ko—at barkada ko na tanggap pa rin ako maka graduate man o hindi 😂, si Ma’am @shengderellaaa at ate Sab na pinupuntahan ako to wake me back to my senses kapag nawawalan na ako ng ganang ipagpatuloy ‘yung studies ko, OFC ko na pinapadalhan ako ng comfort food kapag alam nilang kelangang kelangan ko ng comfort, ang mga nag-volunteer (ate April, tita Marlyn, ate Sab, ate Sheng, ate Chai, at ate Wilms lol special mention kayo ah) when I need more people in my videos, sa supervisors ko (Ma’am Geng, Ma’am Tere, at Ma’am Boi) sa Civil Service Commission na napaka approachable at saya katrabaho kahit saglit lang, at pati na rin syempre ‘yung mga taga suporta ko na isa sa mga naging motivation ko. Kung ‘di po talaga dahil sa mga taong ‘to, balikbayan ako HEHE. Alam n’yo, gabi-gabi ko sinabi kay Lord na nahirapan na ako tas may sabay pang iyak ‘yun haha tas sabi ko sa Kanya, ‘Lord, Kayo na po bahala’ tapos ayun nga. Nairaos din ang 2 years of uncertainty ko 😭 Naiyak ako nung tinawag pangalan ko kasi ang hirap para sa’kin emotionally at mentally ‘yung napagdaanan ko, hindi kahanga-hanga ‘yung pagiging unmotivated ko minsan, at pakiramdam ko, ‘ hindi ko naman siguro deserve ‘to’. Naisip ko na lang na para sa mga taong tumulong sakin ang success na ‘to. Tsaka syempre kasabay na dun ‘yung laking pasasalamat ko kay Lord kasi hindi Nya talaga ako pinabayaan. Alam ko namang hindi pa dito nagtatapos ang kalbaryo kasi may college life pa 🙂🙂🙂 pero gusto ko lang ibahagi sa inyo ‘to para malaman ninyo na hindi kayo nag-iisa. Basta Lord, sisipagan ko na po talaga sa susunod na kabanata hehe ALL GLORY IS YOURS! 🙌🏼
“This journey and I had a love-hate relationship; it was never easy,” she said.
Esclito explained how she had cried while trying to balance her showbiz career and studies, adding that she did not think she would get through her struggles. While her journey to completing her high school education was far from easy, Esclito stressed she would never have accomplished it without help from others.
The actress then noted how her teachers, family and friends were understanding and considerate while she worked to finish school requirements. She also joked that her group of friends would accept her even if she did not graduate.
Esclito later thanked one of her teachers, Hershey Tonato and one “ate (older sister) Sab” for visiting her to “wake [her] back to [her] senses” whenever she starts to lose motivation to study. She also expressed her gratitude for her supervisors at the Civil Service Commission, whom she described as “approachable” and fun to work with.
Along with her friends and family, Esclito added that one of her motivations to finish her studies was her supporters.
The actress also admitted that since finishing senior high school was so difficult, it led her to pray every night in tears. However, after her graduation, Esclito declared that she is finally done with her “[two] years of uncertainty.”
Due to the struggles she faced from balancing her career and studies, Esclito could also not help but cry when her name was called during the online commencement exercise. Aside from completing senior high school, Esclito also graduated with a character award for generosity and an academic award for Philippine politics and governance. JB
