MANILA – Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach has officially signed a management contract with IMG.

She made the announcement while talking to host Steve Harvey during the 65th Miss Universe pageant at the Mall of Asia Arena on Monday.

Wurtzbach said her journey as Miss Universe helped her become the woman that she is today as it opened a lot of opportunities for her.

“It really exceeded my expectations. It was a remarkable year. I’ve really grown as a woman. I learned so many things. This actually opened a lot of doors for me. Actually, I just signed with IMG so I am very excited about that,” she said.

Wurtzbach said she is hoping people will continue to support her even after she passes on the Miss Universe crown to her successor.

In a previous interview with ABS-CBN News, Wurtzbach said she will consider whatever project IMG will give her.

“Siyempre I will consult with them. Kung ano sa tingin nila ang bagay sa akin, I will consider that. Masaya naman ako that they considered me under their wing and that they think I was a great ambassador for Miss Universe and that they want to continue working with me. Ibig sabihin, good job ako doon,” she said.
