With all the hype around Kelsey Merritt being the first Filipina to walk the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (you can catch it on Fox Life on December 3 at 8 p.m.), it can easily slip people’s minds that Kelsey is a graduate of Ateneo de Manila University with a communication degree.
She reminded everyone of her blue roots when she tweeted her support three times for the Ateneo Basketball Team to win in this year’s UAAP League. (Ateneo, the defending champion, is playing against UP Diliman, whose basketball team UP Fighting Maroons last won the championship in 1986.)
“OBF” stands for “one big fight,” the battle cry of Ateneo. Love the attitude!
Eagles for Blue Eagles, of course.
The university holds a bonfire (and party!) whenever its basketball team wins a championship. So yes, Kelsey missed out. (Sorry, BB!)
Kelsey is a true blue eagle. Here’s her Instagram post from May 2017; she details what she had to go through to graduate on time (read: study hard, keep up with schoolwork), since she was already modeling in New York.
