Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach on Saturday shared a selfie sans her usual glamorous look as part of an online challenge, dubbed #AsSheIs.
“Everyday, we all struggle to be comfortable with our imperfections. But today, I’m taking this picture to say hello to ME.”
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach made this statement on Instagram on Saturday as she took on the #AsSheIs online challenge and shared a selfie sans her usual glamorous look.
The said challenge, which her fellow beauty queen and reigning Miss Universe Catriona Gray had earlier participated, urges participants to share unfiltered photos of themselves along with captions geared towards bringing perspective back to the image-sharing app.
“Just me. No makeup. No glam team. No styling. And, I’m happy with what I see,” continued Pia, who nominated her fellow beauty queens Iris Mittenaere and Gazini Ganados to take on the challenge as well.
She ended her statement by reminding her followers that “life’s too short to be unkind to yourself” and that the body is not an ornament, rather an instrument to “inspire, uplift, and encourage yourself and others who need it”
