Late in November, the newest batch of celebrities to receive the annual German Moreno Walk of Fame Awardees this year revealed Pia Wurtzbach for her major contribution to the Philippine entertainment industry both as an actress and a beauty queen, among others.

Having dreamt of such milestone for a long while, the Miss Universe 2015 was naturally in a state of euphoria as she finally received her brass star on Monday in Eastwood City. In a caption she wrote on Instagram, Pia extended her gratitude towards the German Moreno Foundation for naming her as one of their rightful recipients of the honor.

“My heart was pounding as they unveiled my star at the [Walk of Fame] in Eastwood! Thank you for this great honor and for recognizing my achievements even though I still feel like a newbie in the business. Thank you also to the German Moreno Foundation, and congratulations to my fellow recipients last night!,” shared the “My Perfect You” star.

“But you know what, the real stars are the people who work behind the scenes. I salute your hard work - the time, patience and effort - to make sure that what you watch in front of the camera is something we can all be proud of. To my family, all the fans and supporters, thank you! This star is for you,” wrote the actress.
