"If you really love something, 'di mo siya puwedeng bitawan agad. Timing lang. It will just come." -- Kim Kianna Dy
Last season, the De La Salle Lady Spikers' hard-hitting opposite spiker Kim Dy seemingly came out of nowhere.
The 5'10" product of De La Salle Zobel became one of the best surprises for the eventual champions from Taft, even being named the UAAP Season 78 Finals MVP.
Now on her fourth playing year, she's a full-fledged star leading the Lady Spikers to have a firm hold of the no. 2 spot, all without many of their core players from last year's squad that won it all.
But before all of her success, Kim Dy had to ride coach Ramil De Jesus' bench early in her collegiate career, which led her to question her future in the sport before she broke out on the fateful second half of season 78.
In the clip below, an emotional Kim Dy shares how her sheer love for volleyball, along with the important people in her life gave her the patience to wait for her time to shine.
"The things that are important to me are of course my family, my teammates kasi sila rin yung naging family ko in my stay here sa La Salle, and also siyempre, volleyball. That's the thing that made me grow as a person, it taught me how to be patient, how to be hardworking, and to do what you can."
