Our Queen, Pia Wurtzbach, took home the much-coveted Miss Universe title in 2015, delivering the crown to the Philippines 42 years after the country’s last win. Who does Queen Pia credit for her grit and unwavering determination? Her ever-supportive sister, Sarah Wurtzbach!
With her grace, beauty, and brains, it is hard to believe that Pia had to join Bb. Pilipinas thrice before finally making it to Las Vegas, Nevada, to vie for the Miss Universe crown. Her story inspired many, and the beauty queen was praised for her will and determination. However, Pia insists that it was all thanks to her younger sister, Sarah Wurtbach, who inspired to never give up on her dream.
During a Miss Universe fan page Q&A, Queen Pia shared:
“Run to my sister and give her a big hug! She’s the one who convinced me to join Miss Philippines (my third attempt) and I finally got it.”
In 2013, Pia joined Bb. Pilipinas and finished as the First Runner-Up. However, in 2014, she only made it to the Top 15. When she tried her luck once again in 2015, Pia eventually snagged the crown and went on to represent the country in the prestigious Miss Universe beauty pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada. The rest, as they say, is history.
It was in the same year that she won the crown, making her sister and her country very proud. Indeed, this queen proved to the whole universe that she is worthy of the title, and is confidently beautiful with a heart.
