All UP alumni must be proud of her. Filipinos all over the world must be proud as well for a Filipina beauty who brought prestige and pride to our country.
Shamcey Supsup, a graduate of the University of the Philippines, bagged the 4th place in Miss Universe 2011 beauty pageant held today at Sao Paolo City in Brazil. She was the Philippines' representative to the this popular beauty pageant after winning the title in Binibining Pilipinas 2011.
Judge Vivica A. Fox asked Supsup the question: "Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person that you love? Why or why not?" The Filipina beauty answered: "If I had to change my religious beliefs, I would not marry the person that I love because the first person I love is God, who created me. I have my faith and my principles, and this is what makes me who I am. And if that person loves me, he should love my God, too."
I think that was an excellent answer. It was just "unfortunate" that she did not make it to win the title of Miss Universe. One of the renowned women in the world today, Opray Winfrey, commented on this issue:
Shamcey graduated valedictorian in elementary at Notre Dame of Lagao in General Santos City, salutatorian in Makati City High School, and magna cum laude from the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. She also topped the Architecture Licensure Examination last July 2010.
Congratulations to Ms. Shamcey Supsup! Manong Oble is so proud of you!
