From the night Pia Wurtzbach won the Miss Universe crown almost a year ago, she made sure that the everyone would remember—she’s confidently beautiful…with a heart. Physically, there’s no doubt that she has the right to be named the most beautiful woman in the universe, but what makes her beyond beautiful is how she continues to embody the true meaning of the title through her words and actions. She knows that she is a role model to many and uses different social media platforms to spread awareness on important causes. She also makes sure to serve up some queenly inspirational messages every once in a while and trust us when we say they are absolute #goals.
Below are eight of our favorite quotes we found from her IG, perfect for every modern Filipina.
