“I was a scholar too. I want to inspire people by showing them there’s no substitute for education,” the actor said in another interview.
In a Facebook live video, Cesar also showed that he received a bronze medal for Best in Policy Paper for his work titled “Arts as Instrument of Drug Rehabilitation: A Policy Recommendation.”

Cesar as a proud grandfather
Cesar also made headlines after he congratulated his son Diego who recently welcomed his first daughter last month.
“I am proud and I feel blessed,” he said in an interview with Inquirer.net.
When asked for the advice that he can give his son, the seasoned actor was quick to note that he is not a perfect father.
“I am still a work in progress. I have failures and shortcomings. But I grew and learned important things that I want to share with my dear son, Diego,” he said.
Among the things that he advised are to be present and engaged, to be patient and understanding, and finally to lead by example.
