At 39, actress Jodi Sta. Maria fulfills one of her lifelong dreams: To finish her studies!  

Jodi officially graduated from college earlier today, June 23.  She finished her degree in Psychology at Southville International School and Colleges. 

Posting her graduation photo on Instagram, the actress said, "Success comes to those who want it. And sometimes you have to ask yourself 'how much do I want this?' I dreamt of finishing my schooling ever since I entered show business and today, after more than a decade, marks the fulfillment of that dream. After 4 long years, I am here graduating from college."

While it's certainly tough to juggle acting, studies, and being a mom, Jodi shared that having faith and determination made it possible. She said, "In school, whenever I faced a seemingly insurmountable task, I’d always push myself and say 'it can be done.' I knew that God was with me all throughout my college life and I kept holding on to his promise that I can do all things through Him who gave me strength and supplied me with more than I needed according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. God is always faithful to his word."


Jodi ended the post with an uplifting reminder for her followers: "Remember, it is never too late, and you are never too old to reach your stars."

Congratulations, Jodi!
