ATENEO libero Ponggay Gaston is energetic on the volleyball court and animated on the sidelines. It makes sense that what’s in her gym bag is as dynamic as her.
While the cheerful Lady Eagle is always partying it up even on the court, her faith in God is something that she takes seriously.
Gaston has a lot inside her enormous gym bag - from game essentials, to gadgets and extra clothes, but one that stood out the most is a piece of paper from a fan.
“I have this piece of paper that we got from one of the fans and it’s a prayer, I always keep it because I always like to pray because God is awesome,” she said.
“And then I have a cross because I always like bringing it around with me, this cross. I always kiss it ‘cause God is so good,” added Gaston.
The Lady Eagles libero also knows how to be a supportive teammate.
“I also have this, this is so awesome. This is Kat Tolentino, my teammate, this is her thesis project it’s called Renew. It’s a natural deodorizer it smells really good,” she shared.
Having a happy attitude, Gaston doesn’t mind making fun of herself.
She wears her glasses for both health and aesthetic reasons, while she carries a tooth brush ‘cause it’s very important to smell good.
“I have my glasses because sometimes my head hurts when I don’t wear my glasses so I’m gonna wear it now so I look smart,” she said.
