On Wednesday, the 40-year-old athlete revealed on his Instagram account that he received a bachelor of arts degree in political science, local government administration.
In his post, “the Pacman” shared some photos of his graduation, along with the caption, “Let us engrave this in our hearts: It is never too late to dream bigger dreams. It is never too late to accomplish our dreams. LIVE YOUR PASSION, not just for yourself, but for your family and for our country.”
Pacquiao’s new degree will come in handy with his current position as a senator in the Philippines.
He eventually earned his high school diploma at age 29 in 2007, after passing the accreditation and equivalency test under the Department of Education’s Alternative Learning System. Two years later, Pacquiao was given an honorary doctorate degree in humanities by the Southwestern University in Cebu City.
He also enrolled in the business management program at Notre Dame of Dadiangas University in General Santos City but did not finish his studies there, Inquirer reports.
