She may be one fulfilled youngster with a celebrated and successful showbiz career, but Kim Chiu sees there’s more to life than a mere blockbuster movie or a top-rating show.
This is why she decided to go back to school and study a course that can help her seek more options beyond her staple teleseryes or films.
Kim told fellow actress Giselle Sanchez that she has enrolled in UP for an online business management program. Giselle disclosed this in a May 12 Manila Bulletin article.
“I am so happy I got accepted in UP Diliman, I took the entrance exams last August and passed and I have already enrolled. I chose business management because I own several business franchises including Julie’s Bakeshop and Potato Corner. My sister Lakam has been managing these for some time now but I want to try and manage one myself someday, like a restaurant or something,” Giselle quoted Kim as saying in a chat when they went to Bantay, Ilocus Sur for a show recently.
Giselle also revealed that it was Kim’s father, William Chiu, who inspired her to take the course.
“Yes. Marami ng business tinayo tatay ko. I cannot recall anymore which ones were successful and which ones failed, basta marami. Meron rice mill, piggery, sibuyasan, clothes, kambingan, talyer, manukan…’yung bakery niya, ’yun talaga ang nag-boom. All my relatives are into different kind of businesses, it’s in our blood, I guess,” Giselle further quoted her.
