I got lucky to have met Pia earlier this year during the unveiling of LG G4 event at Solaire. She was one of the special guests to witness the unveiling of how great LG G4 mobile phone is. She was so polite and accommodating to our photo opportunity with her.

The 28-year old beauty queen is also a stylist and finished Culinary Arts at the Center for Asian Culinary Studies. She might have received a lot of haters and negative comments, but they don’t really matter. What’s important is we were able to represent and chalk another one up for Pinas!

Ultimately, she is “confidently beautiful with a heart.” BOOM!
