Anyone who is in a serious relationship would want their love story to be perfect. Sadly, there is no such thing as a perfect relationship. But, at the very least, you can choose to love someone who has the same dreams and aspirations as you – so you can support each other. Take it from long-time couple John Khenbert L. Yu and Kimberly P. Dospueblos who are now making a wave on social media because of their #relationshipgoals love story.
The viral couple became instant celebrities after Khenbert took to Twitter to share their recent academic achievement with their friends and relatives. On July 4, the proud boyfriend posted a graduation photo of him and Kimberly with the caption that reads:
“5-year course, 4 years in a relationship, 3 years of struggle (masaya pa 1st at 2nd yr ng arki), 2 laudes,1 dream”

According to our source, both Khenbert and Kimberly earned a bachelor’s degree in Architecture at the University of the Philippines Mindanao. Not to mention, the two of them also graduated as cum laude in the said university.
In an exclusive interview with When in Manila, the couple shared that UP is actually their dream school. However, the two of them initially have different reasons why they took up Architecture. As for Khenbert, he chose the Architecture because he thought that it was just all about drawing houses and buildings. But he admitted that he was wrong.
Meanwhile, Kimberly revealed that she knew she had to take up Architecture as her college degree since she thought that it would be “the perfect course that best suited her interests”. She shared that ever since she was a grade school student, she has always been fond of Arts and Mathematics. That’s why she strongly believes that Architecture is the best fit for her.

Moreover, the two opened up that they’ve known each other ever since they were in grade school at Ateneo de Davao University.
Asked how they managed to balance their studies and relationship, Khenbert said:
“Balancing our academics and relationship was never really a problem, primarily because we had the same school work and the mindset to prioritize academics over dating. Most of the time we do our school work together. It also helps that we are able to make up for the weaknesses of each other.”
On the other hand, Kimberly thinks that being block mates from start to finish was a big factor in balancing school and relationship.
“I would say both of us were serious with our studies, so we really knew our priorities. It also helped that we cheer each other up and help each other out in our academics and extracurricular activities.”
