@LovingAra_G @VolleybuzzPH Ay, I have a question po. Is Jaja gonna play for NU this season or she decided to accepted the NCAA US offer na?
@VolleybuzzPH @LovingAra_G no definite info about that yet, we'll buzz once we know!
I was reading through Aby's convo with Carlos Laurel on twitter and Aby told him they have an upcoming league this July. Anong league yun? Does anyone know?
is it just me? bakit feeling ko di dahil sa lineup o starting 6 position ang dahilan ni glenda? feeling ko lang naman...
Kung totoo may option na UCLA with scholarship, then she should seriously consider it. The tuition and dorm can add up to at least $50,000 a year -- for a total of $200,000 over 4 years. That's a lot of money she is giving up -- plus the opportunity to continue career and live in US.
But of course if she stays with NU -- she is guaranteed lifetime employment with SM.
MANILA, Philippines - Whenever Michele Gumabao steps into the volleyball court for the De La Salle Lady Spikers, she comes in with focus and dedication. Her intimidating stance coupled with her 5’9” form speaks of a grueling and nerve-wracking match for her team’s opponent. Her spikes are almost unstoppable. It is more than the excitement and enthusiasm that keeps Michele in the right zone amidst the crowd’s deafening cheers. It’s her passion to always be her best in everything she does. She may be tough enough to lead her team to victory, but she can also be as sweet as candy.
“Volleyball taught me to be patient. It taught me to work hard for what I want and I learned to listen to other people,” says Michele, who was named the UAAP Season 75 Finals MVP for Women’s Volleyball.
Despite the demands of volleyball training, this 21-year-old volleybelle managed to get good grades. She will graduate in October with a degree in Marketing Management. “I value my academics a lot. I set my goals for the future and not only based on my hobbies now. As much as possible, I separate my volleyball and academic life so I can focus on each, 100 percent.”
Michele, fifth of seven children of actor-turned-pastor Dennis Roldan and Loli Imperial-Gumabao, gains her strength from her family. “My family makes me happy. I had a childhood that’s full of love, great experiences and joy. My parents brought us up in a very lenient way. They taught us how to make decisions on our own and be independent,” she shares. As many opportunities are now knocking on Michele’s door, her family is there to support her. “They are there for me every step of the way and they are always supportive of all my dreams,” she says.
Michele is certain that the great amount of self-discipline she gained from playing volleyball has equipped her to survive what’s ahead of her, on and off court. With endorsements, guestings and a TV hosting stint, she values what she has learned from her sport. “Getting into sports prepares you in life because self-discipline and hard work are traits needed for you to achieve your goals. Now, I just take on all the opportunities that come my way, with proper advice and guidance. I enjoy being busy and doing what I’m doing now.”
“Be bold, learn to take risks and accept change because change can also be good,” Michele says.
With plans to move on from the familiar, Michele will still hear cheers, but from a different crowd, in a different arena where a new career for her awaits. She may not be the Lady Spiker with the jersey No. 7 anymore, but the Lady Spiker will conquer what’s ahead — with her feet firmly planted on the ground.

^^Masakit nga sa ego nya yan. Tama lang na lumipat sya sa NU, kelangan nila ng libero....at least kasama sya sa team A
mukhang ayaw ngang mag-libero nung bata kasi nga open hitter or spiker siya noong high school at regional MVP pa ng Davao region. ang problema maliit siya compared sa iba pang mga ni-recruit ng DLSU tapos matindi pa ang competition for Team A spots, as she has to compete with the likes of Cheng and Dy. seems to me that may pride din yung bata kaya nagdesisyon na lang siya, with her family's support, na mag-NU na lang instead of competing for a slot in DLSU.
Mas mahigpit pa nga yata ang height requirement sa NU eh. Oh well hindi na problem ng dlsu yan
Mas mahirap nga naman makakuha ng slot kahit sa libero position sa ls (yap, cruz, saga, sison, dawn..)
