Bianca Umali Attends Miguel Tanfelix's High School Graduation & So Proud Of Him

BIANCA UMALI is very proud of her ka-love team Miguel Tanfelix for graduating with honors from high school at Cavite School of Life. Miguel got the Most Outstanding Awards in Performing Arts, Theater Arts and the Loyalty Award. Bianca herself attended the graduation rites last Saturday, March 21, with Miguel's family and here's what her own message for him says: “Congratulations, graduate! Super duper proud of you! Will always be here lang for you. Don’t change ha! Here’s to a new chapter of your life... High Five.”

Miguel himself declares: "Masayang-masaya po ako dahil isang malaking achievement po para sa akin itong pag-graduate ko ng high school kahit working student ako. Unti-unti ko pong natutupad yung mga pangarap ko at napakalaking bagay po sa akin yung pag-aaral ko. At the same time, nagpapasalamat din ako sa lahat ng mga sumuporta sa akin. Siyempre po, unang-una akong nagpapasalamat ako kay God. Lagi ko pong pinagdarasal noon pa na sana makatapos ako ng high school at binigyan Niya po ako ng lakas para magawa ko ito. Sunod po sa aking mga magulang na nandyan parati para suportahan ako. We come from a family rin po kasi of educators. Yung lola ko po owns a school and simula po pagkabata itinuro na nila sa akin ang kahalagahan ng pag-aaral kaya po para sa kanila rin po iyong diploma ko. Kahit po nung nag-artista na ko, sinasabi po nila parati sa akin na hindi habang buhay yung pag-aartista kaya dapat mag-aral ng mabuti para meron din ibang career na mapupuntahan aside from showbiz."

What is his advice to other artistas who want to finish their studies despite their hectic showbiz schedule? "Dapat talaga, alam nila kung gaano kahalaga yung education sa buhay nila. Wala namang imposible kapag ginusto mo, di ba. Tapos time management is very important. You have to devote time for your studies kahit pagod ka na sa taping mo. Maraming sacrifices na dapat gawin like hindi ka na muna lalabas or maglalaro with your friends just to focus on your studies. And last is discipline po sa sarili if you want to achieve something.”

As a teen actor, Miguel is seen regularly in three GMA-7 shows: the nightly primetime soap "Once Upon a Kiss" and the weekend shows "Ismol Family" and "Sunday All Stars". We heard that as graduation gifts to himself, Miguel got a new van and a new condo unit. His next goal is to obtain a college degree.

But in "Once Upon a Kiss" this week, things take a turn for the worse when Bianca as Ella is diagnosed to have a brain tumor and has to be operated on as it's affecting her neurological functions. Miguel as Prince tries his best to take care of Ella and even asks to be in the same section as her in class so they can sit beside each other. Meantime, Mylene Dizon as Giselle gets terribly jealous when she learns that her husband Cris Villanueva as Eric has become the business partner of Manilyn Reynes as Aurora, his ex-GF.
