THERE’S no turning back for Michele Gumabao as she pursues her dreams in other fields after a successful stint in collegiate volleyball.
Gumabao, a member of the La Salle squad that won three straight titles in the UAAP, confirmed to Spin.ph that she will forego her last playing year. It was reported earlier that La Salle is holding out hope Gumabao would reconsider playing her final year of eligibility.
"Nope," was her response when pressed on whether there's a chance she will still play for the Lady Spikers.
Gumabao, daughter of actor Dennis Roldan, said she wants to carve a name in the entertainment industry.
She is now a co-host of a sports program on television and recently was part of the Shakey's V-League Open Conference, not as player but as courtside reporter.
The 21-year-old Gumabao has finished her BS Marketing Management studies at La Salle and the two-time Best Blocker and Finals MVP would need to enroll for the required units to play in the UAAP.
She is still interested in studying but not at La Salle, saying she may also take up agriculture at University of the Philippines in Los Banos.
"Gusto ko kumuha ng mga degree like agriculture sa UPLB if ever mag-masters ako," she said.
