Although it’s been nearly five years since Goin Bulilit aired its very last episode, we will never forget the talented stars it introduced to us. Regardless of whether or not they remained in the industry, we’ll always enjoy reminiscing about our favorite child actors and seeing what they’ve been up to lately. And JSYK, a good number of them actually graduated college already! Yup, we definitely feel old, too. 

If you’re down to take a trip down memory lane with us, here are seven former Goin Bulilit stars who are now proud degree holders: 

1. Kristel Fulgar 

Kristel was initially planning to leave showbiz to be a flight attendant, but she ended up studying Mass Communication in University of Santo Tomas. After working long hours to juggle school and showbiz, she eventually graduated last 2016.
