How did you get started with the sport of volleyball?

Wala akong idea about volleyball before kasi favorite sport ko dati was badminton. Unfortunately, nung nag-tryout ako for badminton, hindi ako natanggap. Pero nung naglaro ako ng volleyball, matangkad kasi ako for elementary. Naglaro ako sa isang liga, tapos na-select ako sa school. From there nagtuloy tuloy na.

What is your favorite aspect of the game?

Teamwork, at yung mas lumalago yung pag-iisip. And you grow as a person through the experience.

What does it mean to be playing for the Meralco Power Spikers?

Pride para sa akin na naglalaro para sa Meralco. At privilege para sa akin na makasama yung mga may pangalan na like, sila Paneng Mercado, Aby Maraño, Maica Morada, kasi galing ako sa province.

Strengths you bring to the team:

Yung strength ko is yung pag-motivate at pag-cheer up ng mga teammates ko. Competitve talaga ako at gusto kong gawin lahat para manalo ang team.

What are your expectations with the team?

My expectations aren’t too high kasi bago lang kami and pabago-bago pa yung mga teammates namin. Importante na ma-maintain lang namin yung teamwork and work hard lang kami para ma-reach namin yung goal namin na maging top team sa Shakey’s V-League.
