Ms. Everywhere wants one thing

Ms. Everywhere has a simple request.
BINAN CITY, Laguna --- Libero Dawn Macandili has been doing most of the dirty work for the Philippine national women’s volleyball team.
The pint-sized De La Salle University standout lived up to her billing as Ms. Everywhere.
She was diving, rolling and sacrificing her body for the ball.
Impressive in her efforts as the catalyst of the Philippines’ transition to offense in the 19th AVC Asian Senior Women's Volleyball Championship, Macandili has one simple request: an extra pair of white uniform.
Well, she needs it especially when she literally ‘cleans’ the court with her uniform.
“Isa lang nga eh. Dapat siguro dalawa,” said Macandili in a light moment Thursday after PHI absorbed a 20-25, 16-25, 25-21, 25-21, 3-15 defeat against Kazakhstan in the classification round for 7th place at the Alonte Sports Arena here.
The 5-foot defense specialist every after game sport a dirt-stained jersey, a sign of her hard work on the floor.
“For me naman, it's my job to get all the balls and, wala, I love my job,” said the 2016 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Most Valuable Player. “Sobrang hindi ko ma-explain. Natural lang 'yung ginagawa ko sa loob.”
Other than an extra jersey, can we all agree that Macandili could be a good endorser for a laundry detergent?
