On the eve of Election Day, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach shared her message to the next president of the republic.
In an Instagram post, Wurtzbach said that she is hoping that the next president will value the people’s trust.
“Pinagdadasal ko po na maging malinis at makaturangan ang proseso at resulta ng eleksyon. Isa lang po akong pinagpalang Pilipina na pinagkatiwala ng Diyos para sa responsibilidad na ito. Beauty Queen lang po ako. Wala po akong mapapala dito. Pero sino man ang susunod na magiging pangulo ng ating bayan, binibigay namin ang tiwala namin sa inyo. Sana po wag nyo kaming biguin,” she said on Sunday.
(I’m praying for clean and just elections. I’m just a lucky Filipina who was entrusted with this responsibility by God. I’m just a beauty queen. I won’t get anything out of this. But whoever will be the next president of our country, we put our trust in you. I hope you won’t fail us.)
The beauty queen also asked the next administration to also prioritize the welfare of the members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
“Kaya po may rainbow sa picture, wag n’yo pong kalimutan ang LGBT community,” Wurtzbach said.
(There’s a rainbow in the picture, which means please don’t forget the LGBT community.)
