Jhong Hilario talked about his sacrifices in order to finish his studies
It’s Showtime host Jhong Hilario revealed that she sacrificed several showbiz offers in order for him to concentrate on his studies.
Jhong surprised a lot of people when news about his academic excellence circulated. He is known as the Sample King in the Kapamilya noontime show. For many years, he is considered one of the most popular dancers in the Philippines for being a member of the dance group Streetboys.

Jhong Hilario graduated from his Political Science course at Arellano University with flying colors. He accepted his college diploma as magna cum laude. Based on the article in Inquirer, the actor-host had to turn out projects in order to prioritize his studies.
“Kung gusto mo naman talaga ay merong paraan. Hindi lang naman nagtatapos doon sa nakahanap ako ng paraan. Meron din akong mga isinakripisyong mga trabaho tulad na lng ng teleserye. May mga offer sa aking teleserye, may offer sa aking pelikula, may offer sa aking ibang shows din. Naetsa-puwera ko ‘yun dahil gusto kong makatutok sa aking pag-aaral,” he said.
His daughter Sarina is one of his inspirations. Jhong said that he wants his daughter to be proud of him someday. He wants to show Sarina that he really pursued his studies. The showbiz personality added since he and his partner Maia Leviste Azores finished their studies, Sarina will be inspired to study well.
In an earlier statement, Jhong Hilario said that he is offering his graduation to his parents because it was interrupted when he joined Streetboys and eventually became an actor.
