Proud mom VP Leni attends daughters’ back-to-back academic rites
Vice President Leni Robredo has been busy wearing one of her many hats as a mother as she and her daughters reap the fruit of their hard work in their studies.
After attending the graduation rites of her eldest daughter Aika Robredo at Harvard University last week, Robredo flew back to the Philippines to show her support for her second daughter, Tricia.
Just like her father, Jesse Robredo, 30-year-old Aika earned her master’s in public administration at Harvard Kennedy School of Government as an Edward S. Maison Fellow.
On Saturday, Robredo attended the coating ceremony of Tricia as she marks her entry into the senior year at the Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health.
“So many reasons to celebrate. What a wonderful birthday gift to Papa,” Robredo said as she congratulated Tricia.
Jesse would have turned 60 today, May 27.
Meanwhile, Jillian, the youngest of the three, will graduate from the Philippine Science High School on June 1.
A proud Robredo announced that Jillian has been accepted into the top universities in the Philippines and abroad. /je
