Alyssa Valdez, who recently finished her stint with Attack Line in the Chinese-Taipei Volleyball league, said that her biggest lesson learned this season is patience and maturity.
For Valdez, who last played in Taipei last Dec. 31, said that it was an uncertainty when she would be picked by her coach to play since the team uses all of the players in rotation.
The former Ateneo Lady Eagfle added that personal improvement is a must for her this 2018.
"Kailangan mo rin ng time sa sarili mo, para mag-improve ka, mag-work out ka sa sarili mo, sa iba pang mga aspect."
As for international offers, no team has contacted her, though she said she needs time to improve her chemistry with her Creamline Cool Smasher teammates in preparation of the upcoming season of the Premier Volleyball League.
Valdez thanked Creamline, and mother company Rebisco for supporting her in her endeavors abroad, where she saw action in both Taiwan and Thailand.
As for her goals with Creamline, Valdez has said it with modesty.
"We're hoping talaga na maging maganda ang season. Syempre, lumalaban na rin kami for a year so gusto rin namin, yung goal namin ay manalo din kami this coming season. "
As for promises, Valdez said that her team will only provide good vibes in their upcoming games.
