ADVERTORIAL. #HeartStrong: What Makes Alyssa Valdez A Phenom


ADVERTORIAL

If AlDub’s Maine Mendoza teaches the importance of "tamang panahon," Alyssa Valdez rallies the banner of #HeartStrong.

Volleyball has made a strong impact on Alyssa’s life, both in a figurative and a literal sense since her first encounter with the sport was a hard smack on the face.

As the only girl in the family, Alyssa has been inclined to different kinds of sports.

When she and brothers played volleyball, one of them spiked the ball to her face and that got kick-started everything.

Alyssa enjoys a good challenge, and the challenge to get back at her brother at volleyball has pushed her to become one of the superstars of volleyball today.

Best known for her thunderous spike on the court, her track record in the University Athletics Association of the Philippines (UAAP) as the team captain of the Ateneo Lady Eagles marked the rise of the “Phenom.”

On her first year as the team captain, she was the first female volleyball player to bag four awards including Finals MVP.

The Lady Eagles won against the defending champions De La Salle University Lady Archers who had the thrice-to-beat advantage then.

Their victory promised the future of Alyssa as a leader and a fighter, but most importantly, she displayed strong characteristics of a team player.

Being part of a team, she has developed a strong kinship with her fellow volleyball players and student-athlete.

This is best seen off-court with her volley friends when they are just hanging around and having fun.
