Athena Gana, Herbert Bautista's daughter, just graduated from New York University with a Master of Arts in International Relations.
She happily shared it on her Instagram account and posted a photo of herself.
"Graduated from my dream university in my favorite color. Powering through my master's degree during the pandemic as i navigated living alone in my dream city — while my family and friends were on the other side of the world — was mentally and emotionally tough to say the least, but i did it! Being the only Filipino who was accepted in my program added to the pressure too," she wrote on her post.
Athena also uploaded a photo of her family, who personally went to New York to celebrate with her. That is why she expressed gratitude to them.

Herbert served as a councilor in Quezon City for 9 years, then 15 years as a vice mayor, and 9 years as the city’s mayor. He also joined the Armed Forces of the Philippines as a Reserve Command. He was also designated as the Brigade Sergeant Major of the Light Armor Brigade.
In a previous report by KAMI, Herbert Bautista created a huge buzz on social media after he made a statement regarding his ex, who is from Tarlac. It was during the campaign rally of the BBM-Sara tandem in Tarlac City, which went viral online. Furthermore, the former mayor made a remark about someone labeling him "ex." He also sent a message to that person, expressing his respect for her and her family.
Ealier, Herbert took to Twitter and issued an apology to Kris Aquino. He said that his loose remark "unjustifiably hurt feelings" and that it was inappropriate and a mistake. The apology came after he posted about wanting to propose except that the woman had already chosen somebody and used the hashtag "TOTGA." The actor-turned-politician also posted about knowing that he would be able to take care of Kris and that he has not been good enough.
