Marano continues graduate studies amid COVID-19 pandemic

What’s keeping National women’s volleyball team captain Aby Marano busy with the whole of Luzon placed under enhanced community quarantine amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic? Aside from extending a helping hand to frontliners and communities affected by the contagion through fundraisers as well as keeping her more than 100,000 subscribers entertained with fun content on her YouTube channel, the beast mode queen is currently working on finishing her master’s degree.        “Marami pa ring ginagawa. Siyempre pagkagising sa umaga magwo-workout para tuluy-tuloy ang kondisyon. At the same time, tuluy-tuloy pa rin ang pag-aaral kasi tinatapos ko ang Masters ko ngayon,” said Marano, who is taking up graduate studies in Philippine Studies, major in Filipino Mass Media at De La Salle University, in the latest episode of The Score’s ‘Homework’ segment.   The 27-year old middle blocker is busy completing her term requirements.   “So tinatapos ko ang mga assignments, online homework, saka final papers kasi patapos na rin ang term,” she said. “Patapos na siya kaya marami pa ring ginagawa.”   Taking a little break, Marano went up against national squad teammate Jaja Santiago in ‘Homework’. With the contagion still ravaging the country, Marano reminded everyone to keep safe, stay at home, follow the ECQ guidelines and if able, extend help to those in need.   “Stay at home, mag-ingat and magdasal tayo na sana matapos na ‘tong pinagdadaanan ng buong mundong pendemikong dulot ng coronavirus,’ said Marano. “Siyempre suportahan natin ang lahat ng effort na ibinibigay ng mga kababayan natin. Magtulungan, magbayanihan at [para] masolusyunan natin ang problema,” she added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
