If you have watched local tv shows like Ang TV, Tabing Ilog and ASAP you would probably know who this girl is. She is no other than Carol Banawa, the singer with a golden voice and also an actress. One of her popular songs, “Bakit di nalang totohanin” was even featured in one of the hit american tv series, The Vampire Diaries.
When Carol gave up her career in the Philippines, she flew to the United States and got married to her husband Ryan Crisostomo in 2006. Her husband serves the military in US and they got married here in the Philippines.
She traded her life on stage to live a private life in the US with her family. Apart from that, Carol is now pursuing a career in the medical field as a nurse. And it seems that she is now happy and contented with the life she has now after she left showbiz.
In one of her recent Instagram post, Carol said how excited she was when she was assigned to the operating room as part of their clinical rotation.
Carol wrote, “Was assigned to the OR yesterday for clinicals. OR is definitely one of my top 3 choices! I was so giddy all day! My feet were killing me from standing and walking around the whole time but the stuff I got to witness and observe was so worth it!”
She also narrated how she was able to witness a Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve, Panniculectomy and a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. She felt like a kid in a toy store as she was so amazed at how she was able to touch an actual piece of the stomach taken out and a gallbladder with a huge stone inside.
Carol was so thankful for that exciting and inspiring day she experienced. She even used the hashtag #futureRN at the end of her post.
