MANILA – Pia Wurtzbach rose to fame after winning the Miss Universe crown in 2015, but the beauty queen revealed on Wednesday that she has been working in front of the camera for two decades.

On Instagram Stories, Wurtzbach looked back on her journey as a model and actress as she celebrated her 20th year in the industry.

“This year marks 20 years since I’ve been in front of the camera, modeling and acting,” she said. “Feeling so grateful.”

Some of the throwback photos shared by Wurtzbach included one of her in a Hair Asia competition at the age of 11, and a wacky snap with fellow actress Angel Locsin.

Wurtzbach started her showbiz career in ABS-CBN at the age of 14, under the screen name Pia Romero. 

She went on to appear in a number of television shows, and even attended the Star Magic Ball (now called the ABS-CBN Ball) a few times before entering the pageant scene.

In 2017, Wurtzbach made her return to ABS-CBN official as she signed a contract with the network.
