I hope you are not too heartbroken by your defeat, if you can even call it that.
We UP non-athletes can never know how much effort, time, and sacrifice it takes to become as good as you. But we see it in every toss, every backflip, and every pyramid that you guys execute.
We also saw the disappointment in your faces when we lost to NU (who put on a good show).
For us, the UP community, you guys are the real winners. I’m not just saying this as an “aww-it’s-ok-there’s-always-next-year” statement. I’m saying this as someone who sees your bold effort of including activism into your routine.
A lot of people from the rival schools are making fun of you for bringing the LGBT and Women’s advocacy into cheer dance. I’ve read the tweets saying "cheerdance ito, hindi rally". But really, apart from you guys, who else can do that?
Because of you, each Filipino who watches the show (and the unavoidable YouTube uploads) will see that the State University advocates equality.
The LGBT community in the Philippines will find strength in the fact that the premier university respects them enough to include their cause in their cheer dance routine.
Most importantly, the kids who watch the show will be empowered with the knowledge that girls can lift boys and manly boys can dance to Beyonce.
Your routine was unique, difficult, and significant. It passes on a message, and unlike the other routines, it will be talked about until next year and beyond.
NU may have won the title (deservedly so), but for every person who got your message, you still win.

Hi #throwbackonawednesday 😊😊😊 (photo not mine hoho thank u @jctesoreroo) #shinewalangIG #shinewalangtwitter
TO ONE OF MY FAVE GIRLS, MY 10EVA JEJ AT HEART FRIEND, AND THE ONE I’M CURRENTLY HAVING AN LDR WITH (gets mo ba cause u study in UPM hehe)… HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!
I thought since you’re final legal, you’ll finally be prim and proper but then I saw your IG video post and I’ve never been more wrong HAHAHAHA. Jk I hope you don’t change because you’re probably one of the most cheerful, loud, fun, and easiest people to talk to. :) I’d think you’ve been kidnapped and replaced by a clone if you’re not medyo jej and super vain with matching high-pitched voice (like me hihi) the next time I see you (WHICH IS TOMORROW YAY).
I’m super thankful that we got to be classmates in third year. You are definitely one of the reasons (along with the best class eva aka Mg!!!) why my third year days were always filled with life and color. #naks Who even knew we’d be this close, right?? But I’m honestly glad that we happened yiheeeee. I know we don’t get to talk much now since we go to different schools and we don’t really know every single thing that’s happening with each other, but we both know that once we catch up, IT’S REALLY CATCHING UP. We really tell the highlights of our lives (or love lives?? jk nonexistent huhu) Always remember that I am and will always be here for you. I’m just a text, call, tumblr message, fb chat, viber, whatevs away!!! I love you foodshoesandlove and I can’t wait to see you tomorrow Elibaaaaabe!!!!!
P.S. I really do miss you, my medyo jej and medyo always hyper friend HAHAHAHA
P.P.S. Cute natin sa pictures huhuhu omg third year plsssss <3333

Happy happy 18th birthday to one of my best girls ever! Huhuhu I miss having you around every single school day so much. I miss your voice and your loudness and the happy vibes you always seem to have. You’re a legit woman now HAHAHAHA, but don’t change your mahinhin ways cause you won’t be Elise without them ;)
Thank you for everything, bb. Thanks for listening to my stuff and for always cheering me on and believing in me. :) Long time no heart-to-heart but I hope you’re okay and happy right now.
