We’ve known Jodi Sta. Maria as one of the most inspiring women in showbiz. Besides playing fierce characters that leave strong impact on the viewers, the Kapamilya actress has many times proved that dreams are limitless.
We learned from Jodi that no one is too old to reach for her dreams. Her college graduation at 39 would serve as proof. She has a degree in BS Psychology and is a certified acupuncture detoxification specialist.
Despite her successful showbiz life, Jodi has always wanted to pursue a career in medicine. When asked what she could’ve been had life taken a different turn, Jodi said she’s probably a doctor.
It’s her biggest dream and she’s bent on making it happen. “Pinanghahawakan ko ‘yung pangarap na ‘yun at naniniwala ako na isang araw, mangyayari pa rin siya. Hindi man ngayon pero siguro sa tamang panahon.”
Meanwhile, asked what could’ve happened if she’s not a mom to Thirdy, she answered, “Hindi ko ma-imagine.”
Jodi fulfils her dream by breathing life to Dr. Jill Ilustre’s character in the newest Kapamilya series “The Broken Marriage Vow.”
