Pia makes it haPPen
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach added another feather to her cap when she became the brand ambassador of Huawei’s P10 smartphone model for the Philippines. Last July 1, she led the ribboncutting ceremonies that marked the reopening of the brand’s concept store at SM Mall of Asia’s Cyberzone.
During the Q&A portion of the program, Pia shared with YES! why the brand’s tagline, “Make It Possible,” resonates well with her: “It took us 42 years to win Miss Universe again. We were at the time na we were asking na, ‘Are we ever going to win [again]?’ We’ve been sending girls that were good but were not bagging the crown. But then, it happened with me. My dream came true. One thing I thought was impossible did become possible.”
Huawei executive Alex Lin told YES! that if it were up to him, he would like to have Pia as Huawei’s global ambassador: “Yes! Initially, I had the idea to get her. I hope I can convince my company to expand her to other countries, so that we can reach more people.”
