Aminado si Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach na nananatiling hamon sa kagaya niyang titleholder na patunayang she is more than just a beauty queen.

“Let’s all be honest, not all people think beauty queens, ‘ah, ano yan, beauty and brains, celebrated.’

"Siyempre, there are still people out there who think beauty queens [are just] pretty girls, who are onstage, and who really don’t have much going on or much to say."

Sinagot ni Pia ang tanong kung ano ang hamon ng pagiging beauty queen titleholder sa online pageant talk show na Queentuhan, October 6.

Bagamat kilala man ang Pilipinas pagdating sa beauty pageants, sinabi ni Pia na hindi sa lahat ng oras ay advantage ang pagkakaroon ng title.

Sabi niya, “Unfortunately, there are still people who believe that...

"And then so when you introduce yourself to an audience or crowd or people na hindi naman pageant fans, minsan hindi naman advantage yung beauty queen card, e.

“Yung ibang bansa din, hindi rin parang, ‘Ah, I was a Miss Universe from 2015.’ Honestly, they’re not gonna get it.

“Then you have to prove that I am that, but I’m actually am also a lot of things.

“Proving na you are more. You are more than a beauty queen."

Pag-amin ni Pia, “That’s a challenge to me. Hanggang ngayon, ah.”

Sabi pa niya, sigurado raw siyang maraming kagaya niyang beauty queens ang makaka-relate sa sinasabi niya.

“Lalo na kapag bumalik sila sa professional or corporate world.”

Ginawa niyang halimbawa ang fellow beauty queen na si Binibining Pilipinas-International 2019 Patricia “Patch” Magtanong. Si Patch ay isang abogada.

“I don’t know her personal experience, but sometimes I feel, like, it’s so admirable that she’s an attorney, and that she finished law, and that she’s practicing.

“But then I wonder how that plays out in her real life, in her professional life. Is it an advantage or do people sometimes think na baka beauty pageant questions lang yung kaya niyang sagutin?

“Of course, that’s not what I think… But, siyempre, naiisip ko yun not just for her, but all the girls…

"Parang hirap magpakilala ulit, 'no?”

Gayunpaman, iginiit ni Pia na maraming mahahalagang naituturo tungkol sa buhay ang pagsabak sa beauty pageants.

Sa kaso raw niya, ang mga natutunan niyang mga aral sa pagiging titleholder ay pwede niyang i-apply sa kanyang buhay sa labas ng entablado.

Sabi niya, “Iba yung mga matututunan mo. Magbabago ka talaga, mag-iibang babae ka talaga.

“Kasi sobrang improved ka na. Lahat ng natututunan mo sa pageant, you bring it with you in your life even after the competition.”
