Sanya thrilled about idol Pia’s offer
As someone who once dreamed of becoming a beauty queen, it was heartening, Sanya Lopez related, to have someone like 2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach offering to train her, should she decide to go down the pageant route.
“It was so unexpected and flattering. Hello, that’s a Miss Universe winner! It’s nice to know that someone sees something in me and believes in me,” the Kapuso talent told reporters. “Kinilig ako … I’m a fan of hers, especially of her stare when she works the runway.”
In a video message posted on Instagram, Pia said she’s “ready” and will be “waiting” for Sanya. “If you want to train, and you want to join [a pageant], you now know where to go,” Pia said.
Sanya, who has entered pageants in her home province, Bulacan, in the past, related that she used to think about joining Binibining Pilipinas. For now, however, show biz comes first.
“I’m being given good projects by GMA 7 at the moment,” pointed out Sanya, who’s part of the cast of “Cain at Abel.” “And I can’t put that to waste.”
But that doesn’t mean that Sanya’s abandoning that dream. “Joining pageants isn’t easy, especially the more prestigious ones. There’s a lot of work and pressure involved,” Sanya said. “But I’m not closing my doors.” —ALLAN POLICARPIO
