Alyssa Valdez: “Talagang maglalaro po ako.”
ALYSSA VALDEZ — On Sunday, the Creamline star confirmed that she intended to play in the upcoming season of the Premier Volleyball League (PVL).
Alyssa was a celebrity housemate in the 10th season of “Pinoy Big Brother”.
She made it to the Top 2 along with fellow celebrity housemate Anji Salvacion, after receiving the highest votes from their fans and collecting the most diamonds in Big Brother’s final task.
Though currently recovering from COVID-19, the volleyball star assured the public that she’s continuing to prepare for the upcoming PVL season.
“To everyone who’s asking, na nagtatanong kung maglalaro po ako this coming season, definitely. At talagang maglalaro po ako,” Alyssa said. “I’ll try my very best po talaga, kahit andito tayo, nasa gitna ng pandemic, talagang magwo-work out tayo to prepare for the next season. For sure, manonood ang ating mga ex-housemates.“
Alyssa made the confirmation during a Kumu livestream with Samantha Bernardo.
It was last January 7 when her agency, V Management Group, announced that the volleyball star has tested positive for COVID-19 and had experienced mild symptoms.
The agency thanked Alyssa’s fans who sent their well-wishes and also assured the public that the volleyball star was following health protocols, including the required quarantine.
