Bossing Vic Sotto’s daughter with Angela Luz, Paulina Sotto, has just graduated from college with flying colors.
Finishing Cum Laude at the Ateneo de Manila University, Paulina was given a brand new Audi Q3 by her bossing dad.
Both her parents attended the graduation ceremonies. And she headed to a restaurant in Ortigas for dinner with her dad and siblings Vico and Danica.
Paulina expressed her gratitude to her loved ones in a post in Instagram. Here’s what she said:
“I don’t usually brag about academic achievements (my mom does that for me), but this will have to be an exception. To say I worked my ass off for this would be an understatement. Going into my last semester, my QPI was 0.01 short of Cum Laude. Many times throughout the sem I thought I blew my chances, but I somehow managed to finish with a 3.50 QPI and earn this privilege. I do know that grades don’t define you, but I needed to prove to myself that I could do it, and I needed to make my parents proud. I already have the medal but I still can’t believe I actually pulled it off. It just proves that you really can do whatever you set your mind to if you just try hard enough.
“Thank you, God, for always guiding me and helping me stay focused and determined. To my mom, you’ve been my biggest supporter since day one. You shaped me into the person I am today, and you continue to inspire me and make me want to be better. I earned this because of you, because of the way you raised me and the way you dedicated your life to me. You never pressured me into this, which I am very thankful for. To my dad, thank you also for all your generosity and support. I am able to get the best education because of your hard work and I wouldn’t be in this position if it wasn’t for your dedication to your kids. Thank you for always believing in me and supporting me in everything I do. To the rest of my family, I cherish each and every one of you, and you’ve all played a role in this somehow, so thank you. To my super patient boyfriend, thank you Babe for helping me with school whenever I needed it. You only came into my life towards the last semester, but it was the most crucial one and you helped get me through it and never stopped believing that I could reach my goal. To the Com Dept, staff and profs, I learned so much from all of you and I learned everything with a smile on my face. To my college friends (you know you who are), I really wouldn’t have gotten through college without you guys. We didn’t spend as much time together towards the end but it helped knowing you guys were there whenever I needed you.
“And thank you, Ateneo, for everything.”
