A GLAMMED up Eya Laure will soon have her moment in the spotlight in arguably the grandest party of all.
For the first time, the sophomore opposite spiker of University of Santo Tomas is set to attend the 2019 ABS-CBN Ball on Saturday, September 14, at Shangri-La at The Fort.
The young Tigress admitted that she is excited but at the same time jittery about participating in the high-profile event.
The UAAP Season 81 Rookie of the Year has already had her fitting session with her fashion designer and a look test will soon follow.
“Ayun na nga ang sinasabi natin, kinakabahan na ako,” she said laughing. “First time kong a-attend sa ganitong event na, which is sa akin, hindi siya ‘yung normal. Kasi nga pag dito tayo pang sports lang lagi ganoon.”
“Meron na akong gown, nagpasukat na ako ng gown and ‘yun magkakaroon kami ng look test and fitting kung ano ang bagay na gown sa akin,” she added.
Good thing her mom, Jovie, is always there for her be it in sports or in occasions such as the glamorous ball.
“Tinutulungan naman ako ni Mama,” she said. “Sobrang supportive niya sa ganoon.”
The UST star, however, will still play in the Premier Volleyball League at The Arena in San Juan before she goes straight to the hotel and prepare for the ball.
“Siyempre andoon pa rin ang pagiging atleta natin, ‘yung dedication sa UST,” she said.
