From success inside the volleyball court and in her undergraduate studies, looks like Kathy Bersola has completed her first step towards her dream in the medical field The UAAP Season 76 Best Blocker bared that she had successfully endured and survived the first year of medicine proper at the University of the Philippines College of Medicine, and we're not really surprised.   Ya girl survived first year med student-athlete ++ life ✅💯💪🏻👩🏻‍⚕️🏐🏋🏻‍♀️ The year for me was all about adjustment, making big decisions, and new beginnings. It was never easy and I had to learn (the hard way) how to get used to this "new" life. It was extra hard during Volleyball season and when I had to rest because of an injury (also whenever exam results came out loljk 😆). Nevertheless, I enjoyed LU3 and I've learned and seen so much. I know I'm in the right place. 😌 Beyond grateful for everything this past year. 👆🏻#ByeLU3 #MedLife #TheDream #UPCM2022 #STP ❤️💚 A post shared by Kathy Bersola (@kb08_) on Jun 15, 2018 at 6:06am PDT UP's team captain for UAAP Season 78 graduated summa cum laude with a Sports Science degree from UP College of Human Kinetics. LO AND BEHOLD. This year's 36 summa cum laude graduates. pic.twitter.com/NPdwsTMIKi — The Diliman Files (@kwentongupd) June 19, 2017 She also bared to ABS-CBN Sports' Mark Escarlote last year that she wanted to pursue orthopedic and sports medicine specialties, proving that sports is really still close to her heart. “I’m planning to lean to orthopedic and sports medicine so I could help other athletes as well,” she then said. Once she completes everything, Bersola may now help athletes who suffer severe injuries, like herself in 2014, and help them towards taking the next step to recovery. We wish you the best of luck, KB!  .....»»

Underprivileged kids from Marawi, Metro Manila, and Batangas participate in Real Madrid-sponsored camp

The two-day YKK Asia Group Kids Football Clinic came to a close last Sunday with 300 underprivileged kids getting the rare opportunity to learn football the Real Madrid way at the McKinley Hill Stadium in Taguig City. Two kids from previously war-torn Marawi City were among those who experienced the world-class football training from coaches of the most multi-titled La Liga team in history with 33 Championship titles to its name.  Children from Gawad Kalinga communities were first to undergo the clinics on Saturday, followed by children from lakeshore communities in Batangas on Sunday morning.  Homeless children who live and sleep on streets and places like Luneta and the Bonifacio Monument in Caloocan, and are cared for by Child Hope Asia Philippines had their own exhilarating football experience in the afternoon. Mohammed Faried Anganto and Alintor Bangote were brought by their coach, Espiridion Paran under the auspices of Gawad Kalinga. “Football was one way for the kids to cope and transcend the experience of the past,” said their coach.  “It was special for them to experience the YKK Football Clinic conducted by Real Madrid coaches because they learned new skills and trained with professional football gear. They’re used to playing with makeshift equipment, using tennis balls and playing barefoot,” he added. Real Madrid Foundation coaches Pablo Gomez Revenga, Santiago Sanchez Martin and Hector Vicente were assisted by 30 local coaches who shared and demonstrated world-class training methodologies and training techniques throughout the sessions. The Real Madrid Foundation coaches also promoted values through sports and education, teaching the kids about commitment, responsibility and teamwork, all while having fun.  All participants in the kids clinic received a full set of YKK/Real Madrid Foundation football kits, which include football boots, cap and socks. Everyone received a certificate at the end of the session. The Most Valuable Participants in the morning and afternoon sessions received Real Madrid t-shirts and bags......»»

Saudi women celebrated taking the wheel for the first time in decades Sunday as the kingdom overturned the world's only ban on female motorists, a historic reform expected to usher in a new era of social mobility.

Women in Riyadh and other cities began zipping around streets bathed in amber light soon after the ban was lifted at midnight, with some blasting music from behind the wheel. "I feel free like a bird," said talk show host and writer Samar Almogren as she cru...Keep on reading: Celebrations, tears as Saudi Arabia overturns ban on women driving.....»»

The mysterious British street artist Banksy appears to have taken aim at the French government's crackdown on migrants in a series of new murals in Paris. The world's best known graffiti painter apparently "blitzed" the French capital over the last few days, leaving as many as six works on walls across the city. None of the works were signed--- as has been Banksy's wont in recent years--- but experts told AFP that they look genuine. The most political takes issue with France's tough anti-migrant policy, with nearly 40 makeshift camps razed in Paris in the last three years and President Emmanuel Macron determined that the city does not become a magnet for refugees. In the ...Keep on reading: Banksy needles France on migrants with Paris mural blitz.....»»
