“I want to set a good example for my son. I don’t want to be in a situation where I will force him to go to school, and then he will tell me, ‘But you didn’t even finish school,’” Jodi shares in “Tapatan Ni Tunying airing this Thursday (Sept 18).

Jodi stopped schooling before she reached her fourth year in high school. She finished her secondary education when she was 28 and pursued medical biology at De La Salle University-Dasmarinas.

“I want to be a doctor. I went to college but haven’t finished my course yet. I don’t know how to divide my time. But, I will return to school eventually,” she tells.

Will Jodi take a break from showbiz when she decides to continue her studies?

Meanwhile, the “Maria Leonora Teresa” star once again dispels rumors that she has split from her boyfriend, Cavite Vice Gov. Jolo Revilla and insists that their relationship is going strong.

“We may have faced problems through the years, but those are part of the learning process. We’ve learned from our mistakes,” Jodi says in the episode.
