Singer Ronnie Liang, who made headlines in 2021 for fulfilling his childhood dream of becoming a pilot, proudly shared another milestone — he has earned a master’s degree.
In a post, Ronnie shared that he earned his degree from the Philippine Christian University.
“After more than a year of burning the midnight candle, I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Management, Major in National Security and Administration (MMNSA) from the Philippine Christian University,” Ronnie said in an Instagram post.
Ronnie said he believes that further studies will help open doors to more opportunities.
“From my perspective as an artist, I realized that obtaining a higher education is an empowering tool that will provide us with many opportunities,” he said.
He also believes that because it gives one a sense of pride, it also amplifies self-worth and dignity; adding that people respect the knowledgeable.
“It also bestows us with sophisticated language that saves us from being underestimated. It is also like a torchlight to another career path or a foothold to reach high places because people respect the knowledge and the knowledgeable,” he said.
While being a singer is his first love, Ronnie said that taking up master’s will give him a safety net especially since nothing in life is sure.
“Being a singer is my first love, and becoming a commercial pilot has been a childhood dream. However, my master’s degree is like a stronger safety net in this life of constantly not knowing what will happen next. To God be the Highest Glory.”
In May 2021, Ronnie shared that he received his license as a pilot.
“Finally, I’ve gotten my license as a Pilot (PPL) after countless sleepless nights of studying and a multitude of flying hours of training. My childhood dream when I was in 4th grade has now materialized,” he said in his Instagram post.
