Shamcey Supsup feels no pressure for Miss Universe 2011 pageant

Shamcey Supsup, the newly-crowned Binibinining Pilipinas-Universe 2011, is not pressured at all in representing the Philippines in the Miss Universe 2011 pageant which will be held 5 months from now in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Shamcey Supsup won the coveted title Sunday night and it was an added pressure to her that she succeeded Maria Venus Raj who, as we all know, ended the Philippines' 10-year-drought in the Miss Universe pageant when she entered the semis of Miss U 2010 and even placed 4th Runner Up.

And now, Shamcey is being pressured to continue what Venus has started in the pageant.

But the beauty-and-brain from General Santos City who's a Magna Cum Laude graduate from UP said during a press interview after the Coronation Night that she's feeling no pressure to match Venus' impressive performance in Miss Universe last year.

"I'm not pressured at all kasi I believe na...I was here for a reason and whatever my destiny will be (there), I'll just do my best, I'm just gonna give it my all,” Shamcey told the press, as reported on ABS-CBN's Bandila last night.

Shamcey is positive that it will be a fruitful year for the Philippines in Miss Universe 2011. "I'm really not expecting this, so let's just see what's in store for me," Shamcey tells showbiz news program SNN. "So I hope na it's going to be a fruitful year for Binibining Pilipinas. To all my fans, my friends, my family, my supporters, thank you very much. You have helped me to win this crown. I hope you will always be with me in my journey."

Goodluck Shamcey!
