Former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Alec Duñgo has now fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a doctor after finishing medical school with top honors.

Duñgo took to Facebook to share his milestone where he thanked and dedicated his achievement to his family.

“To my family, Roberto, Jocelyn, Arvin, and Allen. I offer this humbling achievement to you.

“You are my inspiration. Thank you for helping me become the best version of myself, always.

“I share this accomplishment with my Dungo and Chai family, my relatives, and my friends who have always believed in me.”

The 25-year-old took medicine at the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Medicine and Surgery where he graduated with latin honors: Cum laude and meritissimus, as per a report from Pep.ph.

Meritissimus, or “highest merit,” is a recognition given a university for students who have shown exceptional excellence with their dissertations and/or theses.

UST medical school students can only be hailed as a cum laude by earning the honors of bene meritus or meritissimus during their final oral examinations.

Duñgo had a short stint in showbiz when he joined the 4th edition of Pinoy Big Brother: Teens in 2012 where Myrtle Sarrosa was hailed as the grand winner. The former housemate of ‘Kuya’ then decided to pursue his studies instead and became a Registered Pharmacist.

Here’s his full message below:
