WATCH: Emotional Pia Wurtzbach gives inspiring farewell speech
Plus, check out her fierce AF farewell walk.
(SPOT.ph) An emotional Pia Wurtzbach dropped by the coronation night of the Binibining Pilipinas 2016 on April 17 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
In true Pia (and Miss Universe) fashion, she took a fierce farewell walk onstage before making her big speech. She then opened her speech with a teary-eyed thank you, saying, "In the years that I have appeared on this very same stage, my biggest realization is that you should never give up on your dreams. We should never waver in our perseverance, and never let obstacles hinder our progress. A dream is a picture of a possibility and we should have a strong heart and a prepared mind to turn that into reality."
She also shared some advice to her new successor, Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2016 Maxine Medina. "Behind that beautiful gown, your knees may be trembling, like me right now," she said. "I am still not used to it. Being in front of millions of people is nerve-wracking, but you have to remember that you are proudly wearing that sash that says Philippines. And believe me, in your moments of doubt, you just have to remember that you have the whole country cheering you on."
As for Maxine, the 25-year-old newcomer will be representing the country in Miss Universe. Her first order of business, though? Food! And then a lot of training.
