Pia expressed her admiration for Rabiya Mateo’s determination and eagerness to learn. In an episode of “Queentuhan” with Pia Wurtzbach, Bianca Guidotti and Carla Lizardo, Rabiya guested and spoke about her Miss Universe Philippines journey.
After hearing her speak, Pia said, “Sobrang open mo to learning at ino-obserbahan mo sarili mo, which is so good and so important for a person who wants to keep improving and wants to win.”
Pia also noticed how Rabiya knows herself so much and is willing to improve on some points.
She told Rabiya, “I also love that you have a lot of self-awareness. Alam mo saan ka possible ma-trigger, alam mo saan ka kailangan mag-train pa. Ang laki ng self-awareness mo which is so important to keep that open mind, that you need to keep learning.”
Pia also complimented Rabiya on how she focused only on her goals and spent her energy there. She said, “I think you’re already on the right path. You don’t need parang may babaguhin pa sa way of thinking o training mo. You’re on the right path.”
Meanwhile, Rabiya revealed that it was her years of being a lecturer that helped her during the Q&A of the Miss Universe Philippines competition.
“That was a good training ground kasi because at least ’di ako takot to the public,” she said.
