We’re still having a hard time wrapping our brains around this, but congratulations are definitely in order.
Leni Robredo forgot she was the vice president of the country for a minute on Monday morning, and turned into a proud mom after one of her daughters, Aika, got accepted for the Masters Degree program both in Harvard and Oxford.
Robredo shared her proudest moment on Facebook. Jessica Marie Robredo aka Aika is the eldest daughter of the Vice President and the late interior secretary Jesse Robredo.
“Please allow me to be a proud parent again. Received a little bit of good news one after another. Aika got accepted for the Masters Degree programs she was applying for at both Harvard and Oxford, her two top choices. While nothing is definite yet as she is still waiting for the approval of her scholarship applications, these came just at the right time.
“This brings to mind our celebrated milestones in the past. Jesse’s TOYM, TOYP, Ramon Magsaysay Awards, his acceptance to Harvard, etc. all came at the heels of difficult circumstances. And then this. Another lesson in faith,” she wrote.
Aika got accepted to the University of Oxford’s Master of Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government, and to the Mid-Career Master in Public Administration program of Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government as an Edward S. Mason Fellow just like her father.
Harvard University is one of the Ivy League schools, considered to be the most prestigious of all colleges in the world.
Oxford University meanwhile is a collegiate research university located in Oxford, England, also of the leading universities in the world.
Congratulations, Aika! You go, girl!
