Deanna Wong has truly come into her own, filling in the shoes of Jia Morado quite well since the star playmaker’s departure in 2017.

Deanna is not only leaving the fans of Ateneo in awe with her skills, she’s also doing her family proud whenever she is on the court.

In fact, her mom can’t help but feel a little emotional with her daughter’s rise to prominence. “You may be spreading your wings now and flying high like a lady eagle should, but for me, you are always be my baby,” says Mommy Judin in a tweet.

The tweet came with a picture of a much younger Deanna, which could have been a little bit embarrassing for the libero-turned-setter.

Awww, Deanna!
