Former Miss Universe and the Philippines’ pride, Pia Wurtzbach, has been in and around Dubai but she captured the attention of fellow Pinoys following an uplifting experience she just had.
A breakthrough was made for the 2015 Miss Universe, known for the Steve Harvey stint during her ‘supposed’ winning moment- for being the first Miss Universe widely discussed on social media. All thanks to the viral nature of the situation.
But even years after her win, Ms Wurtzbach has still managed to grace the hearts of not just the Pinoy community- but the world.
The 29-year-old overcame her fear of heights in Dubai
In a recent Instagram post, Pia Wurtzbach detailed the experience of skydiving and how she went about it on a whim during her trip to the city.
“Don’t let fear stop you from anything”
I have a fear of heights and always get nervous in airplanes. But I woke up one day and decided it was time to conquer one of my greatest fears and it was soo worth it! I remember seeing people with their parachutes from the balcony of my hotel room and I thought “Kung kaya nila, dapat kayanin ko rin! Why would I let myself miss out because of fear?” so I just went for it! ❤️ A big thank you to Lynette (my instructor) and Buzz (photographer) for helping me calm my nerves before the jump. Believe it or not I was more nervous getting in the plane than actually jumping out. It’s true what Will Smith said during his experience, “God put the best things in life on the other side of fear.” Ahhh! I can’t believe I finally did it! I can’t wait to fly again! Don’t let fear stop you from anything!
