VOLLEYBALL DREAMS

Alongside her preparations for the college entrance exams last year, Juliana did volleyball training as well.

"I've been training to be a setter," the 18-year-old celebrity endorser told PEP.ph in a separate September 2018 interview.

"I wanna make it to the national team eventually and I really want to excel.

"I wanna make my dad proud."

Richard is known to excel in many sports, including volleyball.

Juliana was a varsity player in high school.

It is possible that Juliana will make her debut as a UP Lady Fighting Maroon in the upcoming UAAP season this year.
