A lot of people were touched by her life story because in whatever circumstance life throws at her, she did everything in her power just to reach for the stars. One of the best example for this is Venus’ recent milestone — receiving a Master’s degree.

The beauty queen earned her bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts at the Bicol University. She marched alongside UP Diliman’s batch 2017 graduates after she completed her master’s degree in Community Development.
