MCLAUDE GUADAÑA: ANG LYCEAN NA KAMPEON AT HUWARAN

Q : Who is Mclaude Guadaña in relationship with his family?

I can describe my relationship with my family by saying that I am blessed po kasi simula po sa mga lolo and lola ko sa mother and father po, mga kapatid , mga pinsan - lahat po sila - masasabi mong literal na family kung saan mararamdaman mo yung tamang comfort, mararamdaman mo kung paano ka nila mahalin, palakihin nang maayos; yung tipong sige minsan hahayaan ka nila mawala sa comfort zone mo for you to be able to grow, pero once na kailangan mo sila hindi-hindi sila mawawala kaya masasabi ko po talagang sobrang blessed ko.

Q : Sino ang pinaghuhugutan mo ng inspirasyon sa buhay?

My inspiration in life, is first my family, dahil gusto ko pong makatulong sa kanila. At iyong isa pa po sa inspiration ko ay iyong Lola Ma ko po dahil siya po yung isa sa nag-sacrifice para sa akin; halos araw-araw kaming magkasama para lang maka-attend po ng games and practices po specially nung Gilas days po; inspirasyon ko po iyon dahil ayaw kong sayangin iyong sacrifices niya.

Q : What drew you in the field of sports?

My interest started through the influence of my father who is also into basketball; hanggang sa naging passion ko na po siya; then entering high school naman po, kinuha po ako ng LPU sa Palarong Pambansa.

Q : So far, what has been your greatest sports achievement?

Iyong greatest achievements ko po is to be part of the national team that played in the FIBA World Cup and iyong isa pa po is iyong last NCAA season 95 where we got the runner up; achievement sa akin iyon because it made history, not for my self but for the whole LPU community.

Q : Paano ka naman nagko-concentrate sa pag-aaral mo?

In our case as student-athletes po, medyo mahirap po talaga mag-balance at mag-manage ng time specially if sports season is ongoing po, but after the games and practices we take time to cope with the lessons and school works that we missed.

Q : Ano ang nakikita mong vision para sa future mo?

I foresee myself successful as a professional player po and a maybe also a businessman but in the background po I foresee myself to be a great person that inspires a lot of people.

Q : Bilang kabataan, paano mo isinasabuhay ang LPU ideals - pagiging maka-Diyos at maka-bayan?

Para po sa akin naisasabuhay ko ang pagiging maka-Diyos lalo na iyong pagpapasalamat ko po kay God na binigyan niya ako ng ganitong opportunity na makapaglaro sa magagandang liga at doon mapakita ko po kung anong talent ang binigay nya sa akin. Para naman po sa pagiging makabayan naisasabuhay ko po sa pamamagitan ng pag-rerepresenta nung mga panahong naging part po ako ng national team; naisasabuhay ko po iyon dahil nagiging inspiration ako ng mga batang henerasyon na mangarap din kung paano po lumaban para sa bayan sa pamamagitan ng sports.

Q : Ano ang naitulong ng LPU-Cavite sa iyong paglago bilang tao at bilang atleta?

Actually LPU-Cavite iyong nagpalaki at nag-mold sa akin - where and who i am right now. LPU-Cavite teaches me to be champion inside and outside the court. Nadala ko din kasi yung culture doon na paran kaming family. In terms of community (other students) naman po di maiiwasan na may konting negative but even through what is negative natuto akong mag-react in a positive way, and it turns out to be positive to me in the end, kasi natututo akong mag-balanse sa buhay.

Q : Any parting message to your supporters and admirers?

My message for them is to continue their love and support amidst the ups and downs, because I will always find ways to inspire and motivate you all, inside the court with my skills and talents, or outside the court by doing what is right and learning more about life. Gusto ko din pong pasalamatan silang lahat, lalo na si Atty Bobby Laurel, our president and Ma’am Tess, our Vice President na laging naka-alalay sa akin at sa buong team.
