- Pia Wurtzbach shares what kind of life she lived before she won as Miss Universe
- According to the beauty queen, she lived a rough life where she had nothing, but insisted that she kept on fighting for what she wanted
- She encourages other hopefuls to keep on doing what they need to do in order to achieve their dreams
Pia Wurtzbach was able to share the kind of life she lived before joining the Miss Universe competition and winning the crown.
The beauty queen stated that during the time she was competing, she didn't have the money and the resources to compete but she still managed to keep going on.
In an interview with PUSH, she said "Guys hindi ko rin akalain na mangyayari sa akin ito. Like if you go back a few years ago, natatalo ako sa Binibini tapos wala akong pera, nahirapan ako. Pero lumalaban ako. Hindi ko alam kung panong gagawin ko."
"I kept fighting on and then I won Miss Universe and then this happened to me and it goes to show that you really don’t know where life can take you. So my advice to everyone is just keep looking forward and keep going forward. Don’t get distracted so much by things around you," she added.
She also encouraged other Miss Universe hopefuls to fight for their dreams.
She said, "Just keep fighting on. Especially if you have a dream. I always think na kung meron kang vision, you’re already halfway to making it come true. Because there’s nothing worse than not having a dream. If you have a dream, andoon ka na, so just keep working at it."
