If there is one thing constant about anyone who seeks a fresh start — it’s change.
Some trim their hair. Some alter their diet. Some declutter their room, while some change their everyday routine entirely.
For Creamline star Jema Galanza, it’s changing her jersey number.
On Tuesday night, Galanza once again wore a different number on her back which, according to her, symbolizes a new chapter in her life.
“Siguro new start, new life, and gusto ko lang maging tahimik yung life ko, maging happy,” Galanza said with a smile.
The pride of San Pedro, Laguna delivered 17 big points in the Cool Smashers’ tight four-set win over the Petro Gazz Angels – giving her new number a winning debut in the professional league.
It was a hard-fought victory that saw Creamline come back from an eight-point deficit in the opening set and a four-point disadvantage late in the fourth set. It was, indeed, a performance far from the dominant ones that they put up in the previous Open Conference where they won it all.
But despite that, Galanza still chose to focus on the silver linings, saying that this tough, tough victory will only help the Cool Smashers in the long run.
“Siguro maganda rin na makita namin yung mga pagkakamali namin sa first game namin para mai-tama namin sa susunod. Sobrang halaga ng mga games ngayon kasi single round lang.”
