Dressed in her signature blue gown, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach takes her final majestic steps as Miss Universe.
Pia did not say goodbye to her fans worldwide but hello to a brighter future. She instead expressed her boundless gratitude for the opportunity to represent herself as a woman, Filipina and as a crowned Miss Universe.
She acknowledged the numerous opportunities she was granted after winning the crown – and was more than happy to give full credit to her mother for her achievements. Pia also thanked her sister and her team for their support. Lastly though certainly not least, she thanked her fans worldwide.

“Miss Universe has offered me tremendous opportunities to draw attention to the issues close to my heart, such as bullying and HIV/AIDS awareness.
On top of my thank you list is my mother. I am the woman I am because of the woman you are.
To my sister Sarah, you are my rock.
Paula, Ester, Shaun, and the rest of the MUO team, you are family to me.
To my Miss Universe sisters, I'll see you soon.
To the Worldwide Pianatics, salamat!
To the next Miss Universe, fasten your seat belt. At the end of your reign, you will have grown in confidence, maturity, and faith.
For me the title was a dream come true, but the work continues.
Kababayan maraming, salamat po. Mahal ko kayo. Thank you for everything.”
On January 30, Pia passed the Miss Universe crown on to her successor Miss Universe 2016, Miss France Iris Mittenaere
