Chances are, now that you’re reading this, you’ve already followed Rachel Anne Daquis on, well, all social media accounts. And why wouldn’t you? Arguably, the former FEU star player and now PSL and Shakey’s V-League standout is beauty and brawn in one. She’s one sought-after product endorser, too, so seeing her face everywhere should have long drawn that thumb of yours to press the “Follow” button without coercion.
Daquis could be credited for being one of the most popular volleybelles who have brought new fame to volleyball. She led the FEU Tamaraws in their women’s volleyball championship in Season 70; in the two seasons before that, she was awarded the Best Server. She went on to play for the semipros and raked golds here and there, including those for Shakey’s V-League Open Conference Season 8 and 11, and PSL 2014-2015 All-Filipino and 2013 Grand Prix and Invitational tournaments. Her stint at the SEA Games last year where “makikita mo kami kami lang yung nag-eenjoy, as in sobrang saya namin kahit natatalo na kami, nakangiti kami,” is one she says she will cherish forever.
“Nag-start lahat sa UAAP. Nung na-televise na (ang volleyball), doon nagstart na nagkaroon ng mga opportunities like yung mga commercials, mga print ads,” she adds.
Now at 28, Daquis can be tagged as one of the most successful products of Philippine volleyball. But behind the gorgeous face (and body) that has graced racy magazine features and has starred in endorsements for drinks, whitening products, and such, this bombshell keeps a sweet, youthful disposition in life.
“Nami-miss ko na nga mag-uniform,” she confesses, then filling up a conversation with po, opo, and kuya (ouch!).
Indeed, scrolling down Daquis’ feed is always a guilty pleasure of ours! See here why…
She’s hot (duh).
No questions about his hotness.
…except for the question, “Why so hot?”
She’s one funny girl.
Ha ha! So funny!
…like her BFF Abi Maraño.
She’s The Ultimate Fitspo.
She’s very charitable, too.
She loves traveling.
Above all, she really is one idol to follow—a cheerful girl who seems to love her family so much!
