At 21 years of age, he seems to be doing a lot of things. Studying, modelling and being a sportsman. Nako-combine niya ng maayos ang tatlong magkakaibang mundo na ito.  Kaya naman masasabi nating achiever na siya at a young age. Isang magandang ehemplo ng isang kabataang dapat idolohin at gayahin. Ang kanyang pangalan: ALJON SALONGA.

 Naririto sa ibaba ang aming Q & A with Aljon Salonga:

SSSIP: Aljon, ilang taon ka nang miyembro ng Water Polo National Team?

ALJON: Two years na po akong miyembro ng Water Polo National Team ng ating bansa. And I feel so proud po to be among the young athletes na magkaroon ng chance na bigyan ng karangalan ang ating bayan. Nanalo na po kami ng third place a couple of years ago sa Thailand. Nag-compete na rin kami sa Singapore. As of now, hindi pa ganun kasikat ang sports na ‘yan. kasi mahirap talaga, at sabi nila, pang-mayaman lang daw. Pero I can say, it’s a very good sports and soon, alam kong marami ang sasali sa sports na ‘yan.

SSSIP: Ano ang feeling na naa-attain mo sa kakaibang sports na ito?

ALJON: Ganito po kasi ‘yan. My favorite sports talaga is basketball, then, napunta ako sa swimming. After that, dito na ako napunta sa Water Polo sports. And water Polo sports is a combination of swimming, basketball, soccer at physical contact. Kaya I can say na extreme sports talaga ang water polo sports. Mahirap siya pero exciting! Para ka na ring naglaro ng basketball kasi kailangan mong i-shoot ang bola. Ang kaibahan lang nga, nasa tubig ka and you need to swim good to reach the goal. Kailangan talaga na malakas ang resistance mo at good swimmer ka. Ang thread kasi nito ay nasa water. You must know also how to handle the ball.

SSSIP: Paano ka napasali sa sports na ito, Aljon?

ALJON: Lahat kaming nasa team, galing sa pagiging good swimmers. Then, pinili nila kami at tinuruan kami ng mga drills on how to play the sports. the ball is a rubber ball, but the difference is, it’s a wet grip and you must be really strong.

SSSIP: Talaga palang napaka-exciting ng sports na ‘yan, Aljon. Anyway, maiba naman tayo ng usapan. Punta naman tayo ngayon sa pagiging model mo and being one of the heart throbs of Elites Model Management. What can you say about being a model also, aside from being an athlete?

ALJON: For me, modelling is a new challenge. It gives me a higher self-esteem and it opens new doors for me. And with the help of my manager, Mr. Chikki Martin, who is the Godfather of Elites Model Management, i know that I am being guided properly. At the same time, being an athlete and a model at the same time, I know that I can inspire my fellow youths. Minsan lang pong dumarating ang mga ganitong pagkakataon sa isang katulad kong kabataan.

SSSIP: Will you further describe yourself, Aljon?

ALJON: At first, you will see me as a shy type of a person. Aaakalain mo, suplado ako, pero hindi po. Mahiyain lang po ako. Later on, madi-discover mo na napaka-kulit ko palang tao. Ang galing kong mangulit. My manager, Kuya Chikki and my fellow models at Elites Model management can attest sa kakulitan ko. I am also a very sweet and loving person.

SSSIP: Last question, Aljon. Will you also join the acting profession soon? I mean, would you love to become an actor, too?

ALJON: Gusto ko rin pong maging actor someday. Kung may chance lang po, why not. Isa po yan sa mga dreams ko.

SSSIP: Thank you very much, Aljon.

ALJON: Thank you, too, sir Robert.
