Were you a varsity player during your elementary and high school days?
Yes. I joined the HS varsity team when I was in grade 7 and continued until graduation.

What are your greatest achievements/awards as an athlete?
MVP, Best Attacker, Best Blocker, Best Server, Mythical 6, ICA-XS Fun Run Champion, Best in Athletics Awardee (graduation).

What’s your course? Are you enjoying it?
Management Engineering. So far I’m having a hard time adjusting to college life because some professors don’t teach. But yeah, I think I am enjoying my course. Hopefully, I won’t get kicked out or be forced to shift!


When you were a kid, what do you want to be? Are you fulfilling it? Or do you have plans of fulfilling it in the future?

Actually, I really want to be an NGO worker and help the less fortunate. I love doing charity work and I think I’ll be able to fulfill that once I get a good job after college. As they said, I can’t help anyone if I’ve got nothing. I also want a job that allows me to travel and do field work.

Is it hard balancing academics and athletics at the same time? How’s your studies?
Yes, it’s hard because I have to manage my time well. I can’t be complacent and just bum around. I have to use every spare time I’ve got to study. I also have to sacrifice a little bit of my social life, and time for other things.

Any lucky charm? Where’d you get it?
My Scapular. Days with the Lord in ICA.

Who are the players you look up to or any idols?

I guess I look up to my HS coach a lot, Coach Vilet Ponce De Leon. She was a player for UST WVT before. She taught me everything about volleyball. I also look up to Charo Soriano and Laurence Ann Latigay.
