Shamcey Supsup isn't keen on pursuing a showbiz career

121611-shamcey_main.jpgAfter a good showing at this year's Miss Universe pageant held in Sao Paolo, Brazil last September, reigning Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Shamcey Supsup admitted it has been quite a rollercoaster ride for her upon returning to the country. "Until now parang surreal pa rin. It hasn't sunk in and I don’t think it ever will. Parang when I look back, lalo pag iniisip ko na nangyari ba talaga yun? It's still a dream for me," she admitted during the taping for ABS-CBN's Chrtistmas Special last December 13 at the Araneta Coliseum.

The morena beauty said that she still can't help but feel shy whenever she's in front of a camera. "Siguro hindi lang talaga ako comfortable with that. There are people talaga like me who are better in the background. Ganun ako eh. Siguro hindi siya for everyone talaga," she said to  Except for joining the Binibining Pilipinas pageant last year, Shamcey revealed that she never had any inclination to become a beauty queen nor to join showbiz someday. "I've never acted. I've never been in theater. I was always involved with academics my whole life. This is the only thing I did out of my comfort zone. Ito lang talaga. I don't know how far I can push myself," she said.

Although she is not closing her doors on joining showbiz, the former architecture student said she is more open to doing hosting duties than acting. "Basta ako I always stay where I'm good at and I don't know, I don't want to say naman that I can’t do it. I didn't know I was going to be a beauty queen. I did it for my mom. So lahat naman kaya pero hindi siya for everyone din. So it's a choice din. So yup," she stressed.

The 25 year-old admitted that joining Binibining Pilipinas has definitely been life-changing. “It keeps on turning. Kumbaga everything has twists and turns and a lot of surprises so ako naman, I don't want to be definite about the future kasi this year I never imagined would happen in my life ever so I'm excited pa kung ano pa ung puwedeng mangyari in the next few years. Kaya ayokong i-close ung sarili ko, ayokong maging strict or rigid with my plans. So whatever comes, kung anong ibibigay sa akin, I'd be challenged to do that,” she said.

This holiday season, Shamcey is looking forward to spending time with her relatives. “Usually naman during Christmas I always spend it with my family. We don’t really go out. Pero this Christmas, before kasi umuuwi ako ng Gensan pero ngayon I asked my dad and yung ibang relatives ko from Gensan to come here to spend Christmas and New Year dito sa Manila,” she said.

For her fans, Shamcey shared some advice on how to become an achiever like her, “Ang masasabi ko lang, you just have to be determined and dapat ibigay yung 100% sa lahat ng gagawin mo hindi lang sa beauty pageants but anything you want to excel in. Kailangan talaga determined ka, dapat you work hard for it and it's not easy. There will be a lot of sacrifices but it will be all worth it once you are able to achieve whatever you want in life,” she concluded.
