His academic prowess was evident during his time at PCHS Mankon for secondary education, where he stood out as an exceptional mathematics student during his secondary school days.

In 2017, ASAPKid embarked on an international adventure, enrolling to study Information and Technology at Cyprus International University in Cyprus.
