Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach has called on the Filipinos to continue praying for the results of the national elections.
“Mabuhay, mga kababayan. Patuloy tayong magdasal at mag tiwala na ang mga mahahal ay karapdapat. Pati po ako puyat, kabado at nagaabang. Mahal na Diyos, kayo na po ang bahala,” said Wurtzbach on Instagram.
(Long live the Philippines! Please continue praying and trust in the newly elected leaders. I didn’t get to sleep, I was nervous and I waited. Dear God, we leave everything to you).
Wurtzbach, 26, also said that she has been named one of the ambassadors for the National Women’s Health Week in the US from May 8-14, along with Miss USA Olivia Jordan.
“Happy to be part of this. Olivia is also an ambassador,” said the Filipino-German beauty queen.
“Let’s start now. Let’s start this National Women’s Health Week, take steps toward a healthier life. Nothing is more attractive than a woman who knows how to take care of herself in all aspects of her life, especially in her health,” Wurtzbach said.
Ambassadors are celebrities, athletes, and entrepreneurs who are champions for women’s health issues. They voluntarily help the Office on Women’s Health promote National Women’s Health Week to a wide range of women, including the ambassadors’ fans and communities.
Wurtzbach also said that she has been chosen as this year’s Madrina (patroness) for the Latino Commission on HIV and AIDS awareness.
“Honored to be this year’s Madrina for the Latino Commission on AIDS. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I was so excited to finally do a speech after a long time of training and visits in different organizations on HIV awareness,” she said.
“And above all thank you for accepting me as a part of your family and trusting me to be the spokesperson for this cause. I feel so welcome,” said Wurtzbach.
