“Keep working hard everyday. Push yourself, its not going to be easy. There will be ups and downs and you will want to give up. However at the end of the day you will harvest all the fruits of your labor. Train while your enemy is sleeping.”
Bukod sa love of his life na si Gwen Zamora, sa bola umikot ang mundo ng model, tv host at professional basketball player na si David John D. Semerád o mas kilala bilang David Semerad. He started playing the ball when he was 8 years old.
He treats basketball like his fist love. At mahirap iwan at bitawan ang kanyang first love. Nakilala ang kanyang pangalan noong pinasok nya ang mundo ng showbiz sa pamamagitan ng paghohost at pagmomodel.
Sikat ang tandem nila ng kanyang kakambal na si Anthony, na isa ring mahusay na basketball player.
Basketball always excites him. Ang basketball court ang kanyang comfort zone kung saan naipapakita nya kung ano ang kaya nyang gawin.
Bilib na bilib ang lahat ng fans sa dedikasyon na kanyang ipinapamalas. Love rin ng fans ang smile at magaan nyang personality.
At kung may natutunan sya sa paglalaro—ito ay ang disiplina sa sarili at lumaro ng patas. The discipline we need in life to succeed. At pagiging fare sa buhay.
