The actress thanked her friends, management team and teachers who supported her throughout her college life, and told her fans that it is fine to pursue a dream later in their life.
“Remember, it is never too late, and you are never too old to reach your stars,” she said.
Sta. Maria added that she credits her faith in God for graduating with honors, saying she felt God’s presence throughout her college life.
“In school, whenever I faced a seemingly insurmountable task, I’d always push myself and say ‘it can be done,'” she said. “[I] kept holding on to his promise that I can do all things through Him who gave me strength and supplied me with more than I needed according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
Sta. Maria is set to appear in the drama series “The Broken Marriage Vow,” a Filipino adaptation of the hit BBC series “Doctor Foster.” She will be playing the lead role, alongside actors Zanjoe Marudo, Sue Ramirez and Zaijian Jaranilla. /ra
