Pia Wurtzbach has an inspiring story when she was starting her pageant journey
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach shared the “sisterhood” she experienced in Binibining Pilipinas and the things that motivated her to continue her pageant journey.
Pia brought home the third Miss Universe crown for the Philippines and her success was indeed a sweet one. It is known to many pageant fans that she was announced as the first runner-up but later on, it was clarified that she is indeed the winner.
In the national pageant, Pia also went through a lot of hardships, just like many aspiring beauty queens. However, these obstacles in front of her did not hinder her to reach her goals. In a pre-recorded video shown during the recently-concluded Bb. Pilipinas pageant, based on the article in the Philippine Star, Pia Wurtzbach narrated her humble experience as a pageant contestant.
In her first attempt, there were 50 candidates for the 50th edition of the national beauty pageant. On the day of the screening, Pia did not expect that she would stand in heels for a long time. At that time, she lacked money and so she was not able to bring food. On the other hand, she was able to experience the sisterhood that other contestants made her feel.
“Gutom na gutom ako nun. Actually, yung isa dun nilibre niya ako. Tumatak sa akin yun na parang pwede pala na ganito. Kahit na magkakalaban tayo sa isang crown, hindi mo ko papabayaan,” Pia shared. She also said that in the dressing room, the girls are also helping each other. This is the reason why Pia said that it is important to have friends in the pageant because they will help you if you need something.
“In fact, you relate so much with each other because nobody else knows what you’re going through than the girls sitting next to you. She knows what it feels like to get up in the morning, to face yourself in the mirror,” she shared. The Miss Universe 2015 also highlighted the importance of the sisterhood that was formed during the pageant.
Pia Wurtzbach said that more people have embraced the idea of sisterhood and she hopes that this will continue even after the pageant.
