Pia makes it haP­Pen

YES! (Philippines) - - Stargazing -

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.”
