VP Leni Robredo's daughter Tricia now a licensed doctor

MANILA, Philippines – Vice-President Leni Robredo’s second daughter, Janine Patricia Robredo, is now a licensed medical doctor.

Tricia passed the November 2020 Physician Licensure Examination (PLE). She joined the 3,538 board passers out of the 4,704 takers this month, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) announced early Thursday, November 26.

Last July, Tricia Robredo graduated with a dual degree of Doctor of Medicine (MD) and Master in Business Administration (MBA) from Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health.

In another post, Tricia described how surreal it still felt. She wrote, "6 hours later and it still feels unreal. Good morning everyone, doktora na tayo."

The Vice President also didn't pass up the chance to congratulate and be proud of her daughter's recent achievement. She shared a photo of Tricia and her name on the PLE list. VP Leni excitedly wrote, "Doctor na si Tricia!"

Both Tricia and VP Leni's posts were filled with warm messages of congratulations.

A family friend of them wrote, "Celebrating with the new Doctor and her proud Mama, sisters and family. What a milestone. Kasama ako sa tropang lubos na proud seeing how hard she has been working thru all life's trials and challenges. She managed a double degree pa. Bravo Doc Tricia! Mam, congrats din sa'yo. You are raising such lovely and accomplished daughters who are already changemakers-in-the-making and leaders-to-be! You do not only inspire me as a human, woman and leader but with all that you have accomplished and still keep on doing, you also inspire me as a Mom. #SuperMomGoals."

When Tricia passed her double degree earlier, she talked about fighting against injustice in this time of pandemic.

"Thousands unemployed in the middle of a pandemic, press freedom threatened, personal interests prioritized over public health. And the list goes on,” she wrote.

"Can’t believe I’m graduating at a time like this, but I did not go through six years of medicine just to take this injustice sitting down. Now more than ever, one big fight,” Tricia added.
