More than half a decade after joining “Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Teen Edition 4”, former housemate Alec Dungo has finally fulfilled his dream of becoming a doctor.
On his Facebook account, Dungo shared that his “childhood dream” is now in his hands; thanking all the people who helped him along the way.
“Today, my childhood dream turned into reality. Today, I became a doctor,” he wrote on the caption of the set of photos he uploaded.
Dungo, who entered the PBB House in 2012, recently finished his studies as a cum laude at the University of Santo Tomas.
“To my family, I offer this humbling achievement to you. You are my inspiration. Thank you for helping me become the best version of myself, always, he said.
“I share this accomplishment with my Dungo and Chai family, my relatives, and my friends who have always believed in me,” he added.
He also expressed gratitude on the patients who also helped him grow as a medical professional.
“To my patients, thank you for making me realize that it isn’t all about books. Thank you for teaching me to heal with compassion. You have inspired me to strive harder to become the best physician that I can be,” he expressed.
And most of all, the former housemate thanked the Creator for blessing him with so much opportunities which helped him pursue his passion.
“I would have never finished without the help of the Lord. You have blessed me so much by letting me go into med school and for helping me finish my last exam–with a bonus! Lord, You truly are amazing!” he wrote.
Dungo, who is Alec Brandon Chai Duñgo in real life, is one of the popular housemates during his time.
He was part of the batch of housemates that includes actresses Myrtle Sarrosa and Karen Reyes.
