Filipinos still have a hangover from the Miss Universe fever, and some are having a hard time letting go of Pia Wurtzbach as the queen.
Arguably one of the most beloved Miss Universe titleholders in recent years, her fans said Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere has big shoes to fill.
But what will Pia herself do next?
For months, this had been the Filipina’s question to herself, especially since the universe has literally opened many doors for her.
Pia revealed during the Miss Universe 2016 grand coronation last January 30, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, that she had just signed a contract with IMG.
According to its website, IMG Models is an international talent and model management that has been widely recognized for its diverse roster of clients.
Included in its list of talents are supermodels Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen, Miranda Kerr, and Gigi Hadid; Hollywood stars Julianne Moore, Winona Ryder, Liv Tyler, and Gal Gadot.
Moreover, Pia will return to New York to fulfill her role as ambassador of the Miss Universe Organization.
She is also considering studying at New York Film Academy, where she was granted a scholarship.
