Sentimyento ni Santiago

NAKAHANDANG harapin ni volleyball star Alyja Daphne ‘Jaja’ Santiago ang lahat ng pagsubok na darating pa sa kanyang buhay at playing career.

 

Ikinuwento ng balibolistang Pinay sa Fivb.com ang naging karera niya sa Japan bilang import ng Saitama Ageo Medics sa Japan V.Premier League.

 

“Ending the season with a podium finish in the Japan V.League was very fulfilling as an athlete. All the hard work and sacrifices that my team Ageo Medics made were worth it in the end,” dada ni Jaja.

 

Sa kanyang ikalawang season kasama ang koponan, paitas nina Santiago ang bronze medal sa torneo.

 

“As a Filipina volleyball player, it was really an overwhelming experience. It was an honour to represent my country and at the same time to win a medal in Japan,” wika niya.

 

Ibinahagi rin ng kapatid ng isa pang volleybelle na si Aleona Denise ‘Dindin’ Santiago-Manabat, na sa kanyang unang taon sa Land of the Rising Sun ang kanyang mga adjustment, hirap sa training at ang mahiwalay sa kanyang mga mahal sa buhay.

 

“Above all, I learned to be a professional athlete by becoming more disciplined, being more focused and prepared for each match. I have learned a lot from this experience, but I will not stop here. Every opportunity is a challenge to conquer and every challenge is a chance to learn something new,” litanya ng dalaga.

 

Sa katapusan, nakahanda ang 24-anyos na may taas na 6-5 na middle blocker/opposite heitter na kung may pagkakataon payag siyang maglaro para sa PH national team.
