Alyssa Valdez has been collecting wins since the day she laced up her volleyball shoes.
From her celebrated career as a lethal spiker with the vaunted Ateneo de Manila Lady Eagles, Valdez has truly broken through several boundaries to become one of the most recognizable sports persoinalities in the Philippines.
A feat that "The Phenom" was recognized for in the recently concluded 2017 Push Awards, where she won the Push Sports Personality award for the second straight year.
Backed by her ever-loyal fans, Valdez topped the likes of Mika Reyes, Kim Dy, Jeron Teng, and Brandon Vera in the annual awards.
Valdez was the first-ever winner of the award last year, which makes her the only sportsperson to have earned the distinction thus far.
She is also set to extend hear reach to an international audience as well, as she was tapped to play as a reinforcement for Chinese-Taipei club Attack Line.
The annual Push Awards gives out recognition to Kapamilya Stars, fans and even sports and online personalities who power digital media through their ideas, social media presence, and overall influence.
