Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach shares her journey to the crown

Becoming a beauty queen was a dream that goes way back when she was younger according to Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.

She recalled this at length during her one-on-one interview with multi-awarded broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez in New York. It was aired last Sunday, January 10, on Korina's magazine program, "Rated K."

"May mga picture na ako nung medyo bata pa ako na pumo-posing ako eh. Ang 'di ko makakalimutan talaga 'yung kay Charlene Gonzales. 'Yung sagot niya na high tide or low tide, tumatak talaga sa akin 'yun, tapos sabi ng mommy ko 'Ikaw nga anak, mag-shoes ka. Tingnan natin kung kaya mo. Oh lakad ka dun, balik ka dito. What is the essence of being a woman?' Eh bata pa naman ako nun, parang 'di ko masagot. Pero parang katuwaan lang naman," she said.

But the journey to being a beauty queen is not easy. She joined Binibing Pilipinas for three consecutive years and failed two times before finally bagging the crown.

"Nung pangatlong beses, sabi ko nalang sa sarili ko na o sige, pangatlong beses, try ko nalang ulit. Wala namang mawawala sa'kin dahil napagdaanan ko na 'to eh."

She went on to share, "Siguro nung first try gigil na gigil ako. Nung second lalo na kasi kailangan kong i-vindicate 'yung sarili ko eh pero nung pangatlo parang naisip ko na kung 'di talaga 'to pra sa'kin, okay lang pero malay mo. 'Yun talaga 'yung naiisip ko nun so mas relaxed ako nung pangatlong sali ko sa Binibini."

The 26-year-old German-Filipino beauty also recalled going through a lot of trainings.

"Sa tagal ng nagte-training ako, hindi mo talaga kayang dayain eh. Kung hindi mo alam 'yung sagot, wag ka magkunwari na parang know-it-all ka. Honest lang. Maging honest ka lang."

And now, she finally got her dream. All her hard work paid off.

"Sobrang saya ko. Ang tagal ko nang hinihintay 'to. Ang tagal ko nang pinapangarap... And 'yung Miss Universe na matagal na nating hinihintay, 42 years."

She ended the interview with inspiring words to live by.

"Sana may matutunan sila sa akin, na 'wag kayong sumuko kaagad," Pia said. "You may fail a few times but that's okay. You just hold on to your dreams."

“Rated K” airs every Sunday on ABS-CBN.
