MANILA – Pia Wurtzbach reminisced about the day she became the third Filipina to win the Miss Universe title.

Exactly two years after she was crowned, Wurtzbach shared on Instagram her first selfie as Miss Universe 2015.

Written in her caption was the hashtag #DreamComeTrue.

The beauty queen also posted another picture of her wearing the crown, with the Miss Universe sash on her lap. The photo was taken at Planet Hollywood a day after she won the pageant.

“Never give up on your dreams,” she wrote.

During the pageant held in Las Vegas on December 21, 2015, Wurtzbach was initially declared first runner-up by host Steve Harvey, with Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez given the Miss Universe crown.

But minutes later, Harvey returned on stage, saying he made a mistake. He went on to announce that Wurtzbach is the real Miss Universe 2015 winner.

“I have to apologize. The first runner-up is Colombia!” he said.

A visibly shocked Wurtzbach emerged from the group of beauty queens and was eventually given the crown. Colombia was named first runner-up, while Miss USA Olivia Jordan was still second runner-up.

Wurtzbach has since passed on her crown but is currently under a management contract with IMG.
