Klaudia Koronel: Atress worthy of emulation
Celebrity World Crispina Belen
We couldnt help admire her, for she has shown that with will and determination one can overcome the odds and attain respectability.
We are referring to former actress Klaudia Koronel (Milfe Dacula in real life) who met the entertainment press recently to announce that she has finished her college course, Computer Science, and that she will be joining on stage the other graduates from her class on April 4 to receive her diploma.
We thought she was going to announce some new development in her showbiz career, like a new movie or TV project perhaps. But the press conference was for something more exciting to Klaudia. "Sabi ko noon kasi, when I started school, that once I graduate, Im going to announce it. Siyempre proud ako, and Im so happy na makamit ko ang pangarap ko na makatapos. Of course, nagpapasalamat ako unang-una sa Panginoong Diyos dahil kung hindi sa tulong niya at awa, hindi ko nakayanan ang mga pagsubok at problema na dumating sa buhay ko, especially when I was studying," Klaudia said. "Kaya ibinabalik sa kanya ang tagumpay kong ito, pangalawa sa pamilya ko, at sa lahat ng mga taong sumuporta sa akin."
That was four years ago, when she started her Computer studies at New Era College (yes, Klaudia is a member of Iglesia ni Kristo) and thats how long Klaudia has been absent from the limelight. But of course, that seems only yesterday, and now shes graduating. At age 29!
At first, "naiilang ako, imagine ang babata ng mga classmates ko. Iba ang mga hilig nila, iba sa akin, so hindi kami puwedeng gumimik together, kaya boring," Klaudia said. But in time, she learned to co-exist with them.
Why Computer Science when she could taken other courses in college? "Kasi nasa information and communication technology age tayo. From industrial society to information society, kaya alam ko na right timing ang pagkuha ko sa course na ito. Computer technology is indispensable everywhere, maging sa paggawa ng pelikula o teleserye, malaki ang impluwensya ng computer. Anong malay natin, after my graduation, makapag-specialize ako ng tulad ng computer animation or programming, mas pakikinabangan ko ang course ko."
But it wasnt all smooth sailing for Klaudia while in college. She confessed: "There was a time when I was in my third year, that I wanted to give up na dahil sa dami ng problema ko noon. Hirap na hirap ako. Until one day, nagkaroon kami ng special worship service and I was strengthened by Gods message which said Tuklasin mo ang kaalaman, pilitin mo itong matamo kahit gaano man ito kamahal. Lalo akong na-motivate nang marinig ko ito."
Like in her showbiz career, Klaudia encountered various problems while studying. Because she wasnt earning anymore (she wanted to concentrate in her studies so she could graduate in four years), she couldnt help her family financially and this caused some discord among them. "Hindi nila ako maintindihan. And one time naman, tumanggap ako ng singing engagement, nabalita sa diyaryo, at pinatawag ako sa school. Siyempre konektado rin ito sa church, kaya mula noon hindi na ako tumanggap ng mga gigs..." She was an INC member since 10 years old she said but along the way, she got out, "nagrebelde ako, lumayas ako" but she went back in 2000 after encountering many intrigues caused by her sexy image in showbiz.
Klaudia really concentrated on her studies and no news about her surfaced, Klaudia, like the dutiful sister, had to come out in support of her younger brother.
By the way, Klaudia grew up under the care of her grandmother because her parents separated when she was just five. And if she grew up with not enough confidence in herself, its because her parents, especially her father didnt believe in her, and in her capacity to succeed. "Hindi nila ako pinapansin. Hindi nila ako sinuportahan. When I was in Grade 1 to Grade 3, lagi akong valedictorian noon. But after that, wala na. Kasi nga parang bale-wala ito sa mga magulang ko." But this somehow became her challenge. She had to prove herself. And so she focused on her goal to finish college.

SHOWBITS By Danny Vibas School’s cool again in show biz
Having a college degree is not among the credentials of many of Filipino show-biz idols, including those who run for public office and become senators in this star-struck nation. But believe it not, a humble actress has just finished college and is all set to join her school’s graduation march on April 4.
Do congratulate Klaudia Koronel, one of the stars of the controversial movie Private Show, which once earned its highly educated director, Joey Reyes, the tag as the country’s “prime director.” (Reyes, who has a Master of Arts in Comparative Literature from Indiana University in the United States, was once an educator himself at De La Salle University.)
Klaudia now has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the New Era University along Commonwealth Avenue, a school meant primarily for the faithful of Iglesia ni Kristo.
“I finished the course in the regular four years because I practically gave up show biz in my second year in school. I had bad grades during my first year because my show-biz career was still my priority then. In my sophomore year, I stopped accepting regular TV shows and movies. I just had guest appearances in sitcoms and drama anthologies,” Klaudia tells Showbits.
Klaudia says she never got any special treatment from her teachers just because she was a celebrity. On the contrary, some teachers were stricter as if to test how serious she was in her studies.
“But, generally, people in that school were warm to me from the start, especially when I was just inquiring about the requirements to study there, even if they didn’t know yet that I am from Iglesia ni Kristo.
“There were other schools I tried applying to where I could hear the students and the school staff whispering what an Actress like me was doing in their campus. That’s how I ended up enrolling at New Era,” recalls Klaudia who, in person, has a strong resemblance to the young Hilda Koronel. Probably the reason why her discoverer, Seiko Films producer Robbie Tan, decided to give her the screen surname “Koronel.”
Now that she’s done with college, Klaudia is again willing to accept regular TV shows and movie assignments. But she stresses that she can no longer do the sexy scenes she used to do.
“Since I studied in New Era, I became active again as an INC member, and I’m sure our ministers will not approve of me doing sexy roles again. Also, I have a boyfriend now of four years who was one of the people who inspired me to go back to school. I didn’t do it primarily for him, of course, but for myself. I needed a college degree to improve my self-esteem,” she confides.
Her boyfriend is a businessman who is some years older than she is, and the same man who encouraged Klaudia to start small business ventures in her third year in college. She went into the videoke rental business, which is now quite successful.
Now, Klaudia even has an additional computer rental shop near her school. (I'm not with him anymore)

Klaudia is Sagittarian
What is Sagittarian?
Sagittarians have a positive outlook on life, are full of enterprise, energy, versatility, adventurousness and eagerness to extend experience beyond the physically familiar. They enjoy travelling and exploration, the more so because their minds are constantly open to new dimensions of thought. They are basically ambitious and optimistic, and continue to be so even when their hopes are dashed. Their strongly idealistic natures can also suffer many disappointments without being affected. They are honorable, honest, trustworthy, truthful, generous and sincere, with a passion for justice. They are usually on the side of the underdog in society they will fight for any cause they believe to be just, and are prepared to be rebellious. They balance loyalty with independence. Sagittarians are usually modest and are often religious, with a strong sense of morality, though they tend to overemphasize the ethical codes they follow and worship beliefs about God rather than God Himself. This means that, negatively, they regard rigid, unloving, intolerant adherence to ritual and conventional codes as more important than the truths they symbolize or embody. They sometimes pay lip service to religions and political parties in which they have ceased to believe because the outward forms satisfy them, yet they may not hesitate to switch allegiance in politics or change their system of belief if they see personal advantage to themselves in doing so. They have both profound and widely ranging minds, equipped with foresight and good judgement, and they can be witty conversationalists. They love to initiate new projects (they make excellent researchers) and have an urge to understand conceptions that are new to them. they think rapidly, are intuitive and often original, but are better at adapting than inventing and are at their best when working with colleagues of other types of character that compliment their own. They are strong-willed and good at organizing, a combination that gives them the ability to bring any project they undertake to a successful conclusion. Their generosity can be balanced by their extreme care at handling their resources.

05/27/2008 Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!
