Happy birthday to the Phenom! (Photo taken from Valdez' Instagram account: @alyssa_valdez2)

It has only been two months since Alyssa Valdez ended her UAAP career. Yet, her presence still lingers. You know, like a former love you broke up with on a peaceful “It’s time to move on” note. Yet, it’s one whose company you still seek, and cry over when the sweetest of your memories together haunt you in your sleep.

Still, despite her exit in the collegiate level, many of us only got excited for what’s in store for Valdez in the semipros and beyond. The ever-charming, humble, always-bungisngis (we bear witness to these traits of hers!) and sought-after personality isn’t a five-time UAAP champ and three-time MVP—among others—for nothing! The best times we appreciated the Phenom, though, were when she wore no jersey. Those moments she revealed more of herself as a young lady who was just so real! For her 23th birthday, here are the best of ‘em!

That moment she represented the country in the SEA Games…

Including her extended family…

Those many girl sessions with the rest of the Ateneo Lady Eagles…
