Hidilyn Diaz, the Olympic gold medalist, celebrated a significant achievement as she proudly graduated from college, joining her fellow graduates at the PICC Plenary Hall in Pasay City on Saturday, July 22.
Completing her studies at the College of St. Benilde, Hidilyn successfully earned her BSBA- Business Management degree.
Taking to her Instagram Stories, the accomplished Olympian shared photos donning her graduation attire, expressing her gratitude to the former President of the institution for providing her with the opportunity to pursue her college education.
She thanked various individuals who played pivotal roles in her journey through college, including the members of the Benilde Sports team who assisted and guided her, her teachers, and most notably her thesis adviser, Sir Ricky, whose guidance helped her and her thesis partners overcome the challenges of completing their thesis.
Despite her busy schedule, the 32-year-old weightlifting champion managed to complete her undergraduate thesis, a task she initially thought would be incredibly difficult.
Now, having achieved this remarkable milestone, Hidilyn looks forward to competing at the 2024 Paris Olympics, ready to continue her legacy in the world of sports.
