“I put in my best but to be honest I did not expect to be named the MVP because I think we had a lot of amazing talents out there. I thank God for this trophy and my team mates for an amazing experience. It has been a fine season and retaining our title is one of the best gifts for every member of the team especially the technical bench who push us to our limits in pursuit for good results.” She added.
