A message from Miss Universe​ 2015 Pia Wurtzbach that everyone should read.

Miss Universe​ 2015 Pia Wurtzbach took some time to post a message that everyone should read. I think this has been thoughts that she had been keeping to herself that she needed to let it out already. I don’t want to go on details so here it is.

Just to get some things straight. I haven’t forgotten about my advocacy, ok? I’m so tired of people complaining that I haven’t found “the cure” for HIV when clearly I said I would raise awareness. I’m not magically gonna come up with a potion that cures everything. I know the whole being chosen out of 79 from all over the world, getting crowned in a beautiful gown in front of billions of people is all good. But are you really getting the point of my message during the final Q&A? I said I would raise awareness. Putting the spotlight on it so we can start talking about it. Just like the during the competition, I wasn’t posting my everyday pageant activities and that upset a lot of fans. They thought I wasn’t doing any effort. I just really did not like posting anything online. Why? Cos I didn’t feel like I needed to. Instagram isn’t part of the judges panel. Am I gonna carry my phone around with me and take every selfie, every photo I see to ease your worries? No. I don’t work like that. I put my phone down and I work. And did it work? Yes. Sometimes the plans you carry have a bigger chance of reaching a larger magnitude if you’re just focused on the work. I’m good with letting people know about what I’m doing or what I plan to do. I’m a woman of my word. What I say in public is a promise. Why worry about updating everyone on social media and in the process losing the experience because you were on your phone the whole time staging photos. Now ask yourself. Did you get yourself tested? This year the numbers have gone at an all time high. But maybe that’s because more people are getting themselves tested making our statistics more accurate. I can’t work a miracle here. I still consider myself as a student and I’m learning more and more everyday. So before you go saying that I haven’t done anything, the mere fact that you’re talking about how little I am doing charity work for HIV/AIDS, isn’t that awareness in itself? You’re thinking about it, right? Talking about it, correct? Bashing me in the process BUT still getting the message out there. I don’t have to spell it out. Oh and here’s a bikini photo. Just so I get your attention. 😊🙏✌️️

1st photo was taken coronation night of Bb. Pilipinas 2014 (before the announcement of winners) where I lost. And 2nd photo was Bb. Pilipinas 2016 coronation night where I was about to pass on my Miss Philippines crown (which was dearly precious to me because of the long journey to get it) while wearing THE Miss Universe crown. This cross is backstage of the Smart Araneta Coliseum where the national pageant is always held. I remember holding on to it filled with joy and overwhelming gratitude before I flew to Vegas to compete for the Miss Universe title. The reason why I’m posting this is to remind everyone that sometimes we forget to simply say thank you. Too often we pray when we’re in the dark but do we also pray to say thank you when we’re okay? Don’t forget to say thank you. I’m a big fan of the Jesus Calling book given to me as a gift by my best friend Pauleen Luna. Today I came across this from the same author of that book. “This life I have given you may not always be easy. But I’ll make sure you have everything you need to live it fully. I’ll even help you find Joy and Happiness in it! Being content won’t just happen. You have to choose it. You have to look for Me. This doesn’t mean you can’t hope for a better future. Contentment simply means trusting My plan for you—even if you don’t always understand it.” – Jesus So guys, don’t lose hope. He has a plan for you. You just have to have faith in yourself and in Him. And together you will find your destiny. Just like I did. I’m still a work in progress but I’ll never forget the true power He holds and will always hold. To my first and true love. You ☝️️🙏😌

The Philippines: Powerhouse country in Asia, but also in the world?

Is it safe to say that the Philippines is not just a powerhouse in Asia, but in the world as well in pageantry?. 
The Philippines won 6 crowns in Powerhouse Four pageants (so far) from 2013 – 2016. Megan Young won Miss World 2013, Bea Rose Santiago won Miss International 2013, Jamie Herrell won Miss Earth 2014, Angelia Ong won Miss Earth 2015 (historic back to back in Miss Earth), Pia Wurtzbach won Miss Universe​ 2015 and this year Kylie Verzosa won Miss International 2016. During those 4 years the Philippines have an outstanding achievement as well in the Minor Pageants which I would not say since it’s too many to mention. 
The Philippines were the third country to complete the Powerhouse Four pageants when Megan Young won Miss World in 2013. The first country to do that was Brazil then followed by Venezuela. 
When it comes to the most number of wins in the Powerhouse Four pageants the Philippines stands in the 3rd spot with 13 crowns. Venezuela have 22 crowns and United States of America have 14 crowns.
So if I were to answer the question, YES, the Philippines is safe to say that it is a powerhouse country in the world when it comes to pageantry. 
Do you agree?. If not, why?.
Powerhouse Four: Miss Universe​, Miss World, Miss International and Miss Earth.
