Lorin Gutierrez is starting a new chapter in Los Angeles! On August 10, Ruffa Gutierrez posted on Instagram that she was off to the States with her two daughters, Lorin and Venice. In the caption, Ruffa wrote, "Los Angeles, here we come!!"
Little did we know that their family trip is actually a send-off for Lorin because she'll be starting college at Pepperdine University real soon! According to Mama Ruffa's latest Insta update, the family visited Lorin's college campus in Malibu, California: "Family bonding. Quick visit to @pepperdine before @loringabriella begins a new chapter. #CollegeLife #ProudMom"
Arielle Leviste, a family friend and the daughter of Batangas Vice Governor Mark Leviste, was also pictured with the fam and is, in fact, currently a student in Pepperdine!
In April, Ruffa hinted at Lorin's ~new beginning~ in LA when she posted of her eldest daughter flying off "to follow her dreams real soon."
Lorin has celebrated many milestones this year—from signing with Viva Artists Agency to jumpstart her showbiz career to graduating from high school at the British School Manila in June to turning 18 earlier this month. In spite of her many achievements, Lorin has been vocal about what her mom's been teaching her: to keep herself grounded and to not lose focus on her goals, which are to succeed in both her studies and career. And yup, there's no boyfriend in sight for Lorin at this time, as well! "She just tries to instill in me that I should focus on myself rather than focusing on other people first," she shared in an interview last May.
Here's to new beginnings and to following your dreams, Lorin!
