Jake Ejercito talked about the worlds of politics and showbiz
New Kapamilya actor Jake Ejercito revealed that he aspired to be a politician or a public servant in the past but this has changed because of the realization he had.
Jake has been exposed to both worlds, politics and showbiz, as he is the son of former President Joseph “Erap” Estrada, who was also a former actor, and former actress Laarni Enriquez.
Based on the article in Inquirer Entertainment, Jake used to have plans to follow in the footsteps of his father in serving the people. “Back then, I really wanted to follow in my dad’s footsteps when it came to being a public servant,” he said.
He has done educational preparations in the past for this previous goal. He took up business administration and international management in college as one of the ways to prepare himself in politics.
However, he later on, the political environment in the country made him disappointed. Jake Ejercito also realized that there are a lot of ways that can be done in order to help other people.
“Today, I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to hold public office to be able to help and serve people,” the actor stressed. On the other hand, he said that he is not totally closing his doors to politics. He shared that before, he used to say that he won’t enter the world of showbiz but he became an actor.
“I’m not saying that I won’t ever enter politics, but as of now, if you ask me I’ll tell you I don’t have any plans,” he added.
