Former ABS-CBN Star Magic artist Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, 24, is from Cagayan de Oro. She took up Culinary Studies at Café Ysabel and worked in England for several months before coming back to Manila.
As an actress and model, Pia was her family’s breadwinner, and she considers getting through taking care of her family as one of the best things that happened to her. “I was 11 when I stepped up to become a breadwinner through modeling and acting. Now I’m glad that they’re settled and finally okay. This experienced helped me mature a lot, and I don’t regret it,” Pia says.
This is Pia’s second time to join Binibining Pilipinas, and this year, she feels much more relaxed and carefree, which she credits to her sister’s influence. “I’m the more serious ‘ate,’ and she is more carefree. She taught me how to have more fun,” she says.
When not in the thick of Binibini activities, Pia loves to cook, bake, act, host, sing and dance.
Binibining Pilipinas 2014 Grand Coronation Night happens on March 30.
