Valdez will therefore become THE FIRST FILIPINO PLAYER to play professionally outside the Philippines! Alyssa left a short message on her Facebook account in which she confirmed that she is heading toward Thailand.
“I thank 3BB Nakornnont for giving me the opportunity to join them next year. We are still threshing out details as of now, but I will be flying to Thailand on January 15 to begin preparing for a tournament starting January 29. I am very excited about this and hope that this open doors for more Filipino volleyball players to get the chance to play overseas. This is a blessing that has been very timely as we celebrate Christmas season.
I’d like to request your prayers and support since this is a challenge I’ve never encountered before. I also like to thank my family, friends and fans for sticking with me through thick and thin.
It’s always been a dream to play internationally and this is a very important step to making it happen. Thank you.”
