Shares best advice

Gives Talk

At the homecoming press conference, Wurtzbach says that the best advice she received on her journey to the crown was from 2011 Miss Universe 3rd runner-up Shamcey Supsup.

She said you should know when to peak. You should save your energy for moments that really matter. The competition can be very exhausting. There are times that you should pull back to save your energy for important moments like the preliminaries and the pageant night.
