Vice Ganda expresses gratitude to Japanese citizen who paid for his studies

Kapamilya comedian Vice Ganda left a heartwarming message to a Japanese man who had sponsored him when he was younger.

During the Holy Week Special of ABS-CBN’s noontime show “It’s Showtime”, Vice Ganda talked about the importance of helping each other while sharing that he was able to attain his current status because of the people who reached out to him in the past.

It was at this part when Vice Ganda talked about a certain Japanese national who helped him by paying for his studies when he was younger.

He said that his Japanese sponsor was the one who paid for his educational expenses starting from his grade school years until he reached college.

“Ako po ay nakapag-aral dahil may isang taong hindi ko nakilala. May isang Hapon na nagpa-aral sa akin mula elementary hanggang college,” he said.

Vice Ganda said he was supposed to meet the Japanese national some time ago. However, a typhoon hit the country and they never got the chance to see him.

He added that he wanted the Japanese national to know how thankful he is because the child that he used to help is now one of the biggest celebrities in the Philippines.

The comedian said that because of the financial aid he was able to get from the Japanese man, he was able to become successful in life and he will forever be grateful for that.

“Gusto kong magpasalamat sa kaniya. Gusto kong malaman niya na ako yung paslit na pinag-aral niya noon. May nangyaring maganda sa buhay ko dahil sa tulong niya sa akin.

“Kaya ngayon, ako naman ang may kakayahang tumulong, ako naman ang magpapa-aral sa mga deserving na makapag-aral… Kasi kailangan natin yun…” Vice Ganda said.

Vice Ganda said he is also willing to help and return the favor to the Japanese national in case they meet in the future.

It was back in 2015 when Vice Ganda first revealed that his expenses in school were shouldered by a Japanese man he has never met.

“Hanggang ngayon, hindi ako bumibitaw sa pangarap ko na sana makita ko siya. From grade 3 hanggang second year college, pinag-aral niya ako. Natapos ‘yung scholarship ko kasi bumagsak ako, dahil nag landi ako pero hanggang ngayon, gusto kong makita siya para mapasalamatan siya. Para masabi ko sa kanya, ito po ‘yung batang bakla na pinag-aral niyo dati, artista na po ako ngayon. Na meron pong pinatunguhang maganda ‘yung pagtulong niyo sa akin. Pero hindi ko siya makita. Hindi ko alam kung paano ko maibabalik sa kanya ‘yung malaking tulong na binigay niya sa akin. Kaya ngayon, hangga’t hindi ko maibalik, ibabalik ko na lang muna sa iba,” Vice Ganda said back then.
