"Ayaw ko na kasing tumagal pa siya doon, naaawa na rin ako kasi, 'yun nga, siya lang mag-isa doon, 14 years, kinaya niya 'yun." --- Rondina's mission is to take her mother, an OFW, back home.
Each time UST's Cherry "Sisi" Rondina takes the court, her presence is felt almost immediately.
From her thunderous spikes, her on-court tenacity, and her wide smile, it's difficult not to.
But behind those "cherry bombs" is Sisi's years of hard work, inspired by her dreams of earning a diploma and earning enough to send her mother, an OFW based in Brunei, back home.
In the clip below, Sisi shares her story and her motivations, and how she uses volleyball to achieve her dreams for herself, and especially for her family.
"Diploma. Yun yung gusto kong ibigay sa panginoon, and sa family. Makabigay man lang ako or makatulong na pundaran ng bahay tsaka lupa yung pamilya ko. Through volleyball talaga, ma-pay ko sila sa mga sacrifice na ginawa nila," shares Sisi.
