“Being Miss Universe has offered me tremendous opportunities to draw attention to the issues close to my heart such as bullying and HIV awareness,” she said.

She continued, “On top of my thank you list is my mother, I am the woman I am because of the woman you are. To my sister Sarah, you are my rock. Paula (Shugart), Esther Swan and to the rest of my MUO team, you are family to me. To my Miss Universe sisters I’ll see you again soon, to the worldwide Pianatics salamat. To the next Miss Universe, fasten your seatbelt at the end of your reign you will have grown confidence, maturity and faith.

For me the title was a dream come true but the work continues. Kababayan, maraming salamat po mahal ko kayo thank you for everything.”

Pia passed on the crown to France’ Iris Mittenaere.
