Sarah Geronimo on the importance of education: ‘Bata pa lang ako rumaraket na’ko…’

Sarah Geronimo has been in the entertainment industry for 15 successful years. She was only 15 when she joined and won the TV singing competition, "Star For a Night."

Right after that, Sarah's life changed drastically. She became an instant celebrity. She started recording more songs, playing roles in television and films, and also doing concerts.

Now, Sarah is dubbed as the Popstar Royalty, she has achieved a lot. However, amidst all these blessings that she continuously receive, does Sarah have any regrets?

In an interview with PUSH, Sarah said that if she can go back to a part of her life, it will be when she was in high school.

She noted, "Gusto kong i-enjoy ulit 'yung high school ako, at tsaka gusto kong maging better student nung high school ako. Kasi sobra kong na-enjoy lang."

Sarah added, "Nung bata pa po kasi ako, rumaraket na 'ko nun, tsaka 'yung pag-aaral okay lang sa'kin, lagi lang naman nandiyan 'yan. Pero, napaka importante pala na magseryoso ka talaga sa pag-aaral.

"Hindi ('yan) para sa mga magulang mo kundi para sa'yo.

Sarah furthered that the time that was lost, you can't have it back again, "Hindi mo na kasi maibabalik 'yun (time) eh. Well, pwede naman ako anytime magabalik sa pag-aaral, syempre 'yung opportunity knocks only once, so wala naman akong pinagsisisihan. Ang gusto ko lang, sana mas na-enjoy ko pa ang pag-aaral ko noon."
