MANILA – Television host Ruffa Gutierrez was all smiles when she announced on Sunday that she recently went back to school for a short course.
In an interview with “The Buzz,” the former beauty queen said she took a short course on Secrets and Spies, Modern Espionage and Intelligence in London.
“Masarap. Parang na-miss ko 'yung t-shirt, jeans and sneakers araw-araw. It’s a very fascinating course. Siyempre alam naman natin 'yung nangyari kay Edward Snowden. 'Yung technology ngayon parang ibig sabihin we’re always being watched. Hindi ka na talaga puwede magtago,” she explained beaming.
Gutierrez said she decided to go back to school because she never had the chance to do it after graduating from high school.
“I really wanted International Relations and Diplomacy. It’s more of like economics talaga with World Bank, GDP, a lot of numbers. But I wanted to also flourish not only academically but also socially [that’s why I took this course],” she said.
Saying she considers it an “immersion,” Gutierrez had to stay in London alone for a month until she finished the course.
“This is my journey. And even if this is just a summer course, it’s time well spent na hindi lang ako naglalakwatsa doon. It’s knowledge na magagamit ko in the future. If not for work, just something na you want to keep on learning. It’s something that I want to impart on my children – na education is important,” she said.
Asked whether this is in preparation for a future plan to enter politics here in the Philippines, Gutierrez said: “With everything that’s happening now, no way. First lady na lang ako puwede?”
Meanwhile, the TV host said she is still not closing her doors on love. However, she admitted that she really enjoys being single.
“The person has got to be pretty amazing kasi I’m very happy with my life now. I’m not answerable to anyone, I can do my own thing. So for me to sit down and tame me, kailangan bongga siya. He has to love me and my kids,” she said.
