Incredibly photogenic Jema Galanza says viral pictures just show her enjoying volleyball

Adamson University’s Jema Galanza takes the old phrase “look good, play good” to a very literal extent.

Recently, pictures of the Lady Falcon went viral. Netizens were quickly pondered just how fresh and pretty Jema Galanza appears in photos despite being in the heat of high-pressure matches.

For her part, Galanza was extremely shocked that her photos have gone viral, since most of those shots were taken in 2017.

“Nagulat nga ako kasi hindi ko talaga alam kung bakit kumalat ulet ‘yung pictures eh last year pa lahat ‘yun kinuha lahat halos,” said Galanza, who produced 19 points in their recent loss to the University of the Philippines Lady Maroons.

The Adamson team captain also has no clue how she’s able to look like she’s in a photoshoot instead of at an actual game. She concedes that it might just be her love and joy for the game showing.

“Hindi ko talaga alam. Tinatanong din ako ng mga teammates kung paano, kung dahil lang ba ‘yun kasi relaxed lang ako sa loob ng court. Hindi ko talaga alam eh,” the 5-foot-7 spiker admitted.

Siguro, sinusubukan ko lang talaga mag-enjoy as much as possible sa loob ng court. Madalas lang talaga siguro ngumiti sa court kaya natiye-tiyempuhan.”

Asked if she’d like to transition into modeling some day, Galanza says she hasn’t given that too much thought.

“Pwede, kung may mago-offer, charot!,” the 21-year-old joked.

“Kung may opportunity sana. Pero focus muna ako aa volleyball ngayon.”
