The 22-year old setter last played in an international competition in the Asian Youth Girl’s Volleyball championship in 2008 along with Alyssa Valdez.

“Lahat ng players ‘yun ang pangarap na makarating ng international league - sa mga world,” said Fajardo. “Isa ‘yun sa nilu-look forward ko na maging representative ng Pilipinas.”  

“Sobrang saya din and last na international tournament na salihan ko ay noong high school pa,” said Fajardo.

“Gagawin ko ang lahat ng makakaya ko para maging maayos ang setting ko. Gusto ko rin siyempre na matuto pa and maka-experience pa ng iba.”

Fajardo won two UAAP titles with the La Salle Lady Spikers. The player from Calatagan, Batangas was recruited by veteran mentor Francis Vicente and Kungfu Reyes to play for the University of Santo Tomas girls’ volleyball team before transferring to La Salle.
