MANILA (Mabuhay) — Senate President Franklin Drilon on Tuesday filed a resolution congratulating and commending newly-crowned Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, the third Filipino to win the most-coveted title.

In Senate Resolution 1698, Drilon said Wurtzbach, in winning the crown last worn by a Filipina 42 years ago, has brought great honor and glory to the country and the Filipino people worthy of the praise and commendation of the chamber.

The Filipina beauty queen bested 79 other contestants from around the world. The other Filipinos crowned Miss Universe were Gloria Diaz in 1969 and Margie Moran in 1973.

Drilon said Wurtzbach’s previous defeat, when she joined the Binibining Pilipinas pageant in 2013 and 2014 but failing to win the Miss Universe-Philippines title, did not discourage her as she joined the pageant for the third time in 2015 and eventually won the crown.

“The Filipina beauty queen’s positive attitude and strong determination to fulfill her dream of winning the 2015 Miss Universe title are indeed positive example and great inspiration to her countrymen, particularly the youth, that no dream is impossible as long as he or she put his or her heart and mind in it,” he said.

“Her firm belief that being a Miss Universe is both an honor and a responsibility to humanity as well as an opportunity to show the universe that she is confidently beautiful with a heart is a clear manifestation of her deep concern over the fate of her fellowmen,” he added. (MNS)
