Former Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach continues her advocacy on mental health as she hosts the second season of “Holding Space,” a YouTube series in her own channel.

The five-episode new season will stream next month. In it, Wurtzbach will be reaching out to people from all walks of life, as per her Instagram page yesterday, Sept. 28. She showed snippets of the production where she and her team went to settings such as a restaurant, a mall and a house. She even drove an e-trike.

“Some of you may have seen me roaming around Pasig, Mandaluyong, Rizal, and as far as Baguio. Talking to random people, bumibisita sa inyo, or even pumapasada ng Etrike (visiting you or even driving an E-trike) – and you might be wondering why,” she said.
