THE STAR SPIKER IS ADMIRED on and off the court for her athletic excellence and dedication to her team mates, the sport and the community.

Often called the Queen of Philippine Volleyball, the former captain of the national women’s team was struck down with dengue fever last year on the eve of the Asian Volleyball Confederation Cup.

“Volleyball has given me the opportunity to share my journey and story to the younger generation and I hope I am able to inspire them to pursue their dreams in sports”

Her authentic approach to life in the sporting spotlight has helped cement an enviable level of public trust, and earned her the Most Trusted Sports Personality for 2023.
