Current Miss Universe, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, is making waves across the world, and we couldn’t be happier that she was the chosen one.

After more than 40 years of waiting, a representative of our country has been crowned Miss Universe, and we believe there’s something more to be proud about other than that title. Pia Wurtzbach may very well be one of the best role models for Filipinas to date. Why?

Well aside from the fact that she is the epitome of the physical Pinay beauty, she flaunts the wonderful Filipino accent when she speaks. In the midst of good articulation—which one in her place needs to be able to communicate well with—there lies a tone that so clearly identifies her roots; a subtle inflection that’s not too thick, just neutral. It might not seem like much to take notice of; however to Bayani S. Cruz, editor of The Asset, says the accent Wurtzbach possesses is what made him appreciate the beauty of the Filipino accent more.

Wurtzbach also wastes no time in addressing the advocacies she’s vowed to promote awareness on. She’s expressed her intentions on CNN, explained how she plans to make the change; she’s already recently started talking to organizations in New York that could potentially help her pursue her goals; and she’s started making rounds to visit those of whom she’s determined to help. If that’s not a sign of true dedication, we don’t know what is.

The fact that Wurtzbach is striving to make the difference she’s promised the way she does now makes her a true inspiration and an uplifting image for Filipinas. She shows that beauty shouldn’t only be about looks; beauty is also about brains, passion, compassion, and determination. We truly hope that Pia Wurtzbach becomes a catalyst for change this year, not just in the Philippines, but across the world as well.
