Morisette Amon is a successful singer-actress and one of Philippines teenage sensation. There is no question of the success of Morisette in the industry.
However, who would have thought that she feels an emptiness inside despite her popularity?
The young singer started her career in TV5 by joining the network’s talent search “Star Factor.” Her ambition to become a renowned singer and performer has led her to what she is today, but she also gave a considerable amount of sacrifice in order to achieve this – and that is her studies.
On her Instagram post, she announced in public that she finally completed her Secondary School Via Alternative Learning System. Turns out that she set aside her education in 2010 just to pursue her singing and acting career.
Morisette mentioned, “kahit may “trabaho” ako ngayon, I still felt like there was something missing.. iba pa rin talaga ang fulfillment ng nakapagtapos.”
She is also thankful for the Alternative Learning System that allowed her to continue her education despite her busy schedule.
“I remember back in 2010 in Cebu, that time we decided to relocate to Manila to chase my dreams, nalungkot po talaga ako na kinailangan kong iwan muna ang aking pag-aaral, 2ndYrHS pa po ako noon.. but now there‘s today, where I was one of about 500 students from around QC D1&2 who have graduated/part of the ‘moving up’ ceremony. kahit may “trabaho” na po ako ngayon, I still felt like there was something missing.. iba pa rin pala talaga ang fulfillment ng nakakapagtapos. grateful po ako na may #AlternativeLearningSystem program dahil binigyan po ako ng pagkakataon nito to continue my studies.. I am proud to share na nakapasa po ako sa Exam at have now finished Junior Highschool! mahirap man i-juggle lahat but balance is key. pero mas lalo po akong na-inspire sa mga batchmates ko who each had their own stories to tell, and have also reached this achievement in their lives.. tulad po ng sinabi ko kanina sa speech (akalain niyo uuuun.. mas kinabahan po ako kanina kesa sa mga contests na nasalihan ko HAHA), “the possibilities are endless!” Congrats po muli sa ating lahat!! nais ko lang din pong mag- thank you sa aming mga teachers, in my case lalo kay Ma’am Ellen Talactac; to my family, forever my inspiration (ze bro Jeremy was at his school as well burning brain cells hahaha); at kay Achi @khim_castillo din na madalas naging translator ko sa mga assignment (Tagalog is not my first language okaaay) at syempre sa help & support. God is good! #education #neverstoplearning ☝🏻😁💐”
In 2013, the young singer decided to leave TV5 by joining at ABS-CBN’s “The Voice Philippines.” She captured the heart of Sarah Geronimo, who was one of the judges and made it to the semi-finals. But, there is nothing unfortunate for her losing because she immediately became a sensation thereafter.
Last 2015, she released her first album title “Morisette” and was tagged “The Next Big Diva” as her album made a Platinum record. She was chosen to sing several Film and TV show soundtracks and garnered many Awards and Recognitions in her stay on ABS-CBN.
Passing the secondary level of education only marks Morisette’s future achievements.
