    GOOD things don’t come easy. Creamline star Jema Galanza knew exactly what it meant.

    From waking up so early in the morning to those daily trainings under tough drillmaster Tai Bundit, Galanza admitted crying each time she felt she could no longer carry on.

    Looking back, Galanza could only smile.

    “Yung sakripisyo namin sa araw-araw na gumigising kmai ng 5 a.m., meron pang 4 a.m. ito ang nangyari sa lahat ng ginawa namin,” Galanza said after being named MVP after Creamline's 2-0 sweep of PetroGazz in the PVL Open Conference finals.

    “Ang sarap sa pakiramdam din kasi last year pa sobra ‘yung pagod ko kay coach Tai sa training, umiiyak ako sa kanya. Sumasakit ang ankle ko lagi sa kanya. Lahat ng paghihirap naranasan ko sa kanya,” she added.

    All the hard work started to pay off midway through the conference, when Creamline needed someone to step up after top hitter Alyssa Valdez sustained a foot injury.

    The former Adamson captain dutifully filled the void.

    “Siguro ang lahat ng pagod namin worth it,” said Galanza, who was nonetheless quick to deflect the credit.

    “Now nakikita ko na nagi-improve ako. Sobrang thankful ko kay coach Tai. Siyempre sa teammates ko rin kasi kung hindi dahil sa kanila di ko magagawa yun,” she said.

    “Nandyan sila para i-push din ako and i-motivate ako everyday na kaya ko ‘to. Na kaya ko kahit di ko na kaya,” she added.
