Actress Aiko Melendez is a proud mother, as she shared that her daughter Marthena Jickain is graduating from high school.

On Instagram, Melendez shared snaps from her daughter’s graduation photoshoot — first in a Filipiniana dress, then in her school uniform, and in her varsity uniform as a volleyball player. The actress also announced that her child bagged several awards, such as the Outstanding Student and Loyalty Award.


“This is such a proud moment for you and for all of us,” Melendez addressed her daughter, whom she calls Mimi.


“I know how much you’ve worked hard for this, juggling your time between studying and being a ‘volleyball player.’ You have shown incredible dedication, passion, discipline, and achieved so much. Watching you grow, learn, and succeed has been one of the greatest joys of my life,” continued the actress.

The actress-politician assured her daughter that as she steps into the next chapter of her life, she will be there every step of the way.

“As you step into this new chapter, remember that the future is wide open with endless possibilities. Continue to follow your dreams, stay true to yourself, and know that you have all the courage and talent to achieve whatever you set your mind and heart to,” she expressed.

“With all my love, I am rooting for you!! I will always be your number one supporter and best friend. Thank you for never being a headache to me. To my little me, thank you for studying so hard and giving me good grades. You make me so proud and happy!” concluded Melendez.

Marthena is Melendez’s daughter with her ex-husband, Martin Jickain, whom she has been married to for 10 years. The actress-politician also shared a son with her first husband, actor Jomari Yllana, before their marriage was annulled in 2005.
