Shamcey Supsup admits she still feels shy in front of the camera.
After 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 Push.com.ph
. 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
asked my dad and yung ibang
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.
