Another memorable @uaapmagazine issue is out! It's my sixth and, I'm telling you, now ranks as the most challenging we've done. Shooting and interviewing then and now star athletes became no joke for the incredibly hardworking people behind it, so kudos to the staff and contributors (plus the schools, varsity coordinators, talent managers, and courtside reporters for helping put this together)! Cos, yes, our dear UAAP heroes are not just athletes anymore. Call them "stars" if you may—celebs with brand endorsements, online influencers with a huge following, and youth icons with a say on issues. Social media is the biggest factor in this evolution, the gap between the players and the fans now being reduced to just a tweet, a like, a comment. And who else to cover our Star Athletes Issue double-cover special than this all-star, Season 79 title-winning basketball team, and this new band of volleyball (h)it girls? Get to know about them and more of your faves in another collectible issue containing everything about the UAAP! Out in newsstands now! 💪🏼😎🏆 #UAAPmagazine #UAAP #UAAP79 .
