After her win, Maymay gave a message to those at the arena, saying, “Gusto ko lang sabihin sa inyo na huwag na huwag kayo matakot na mangarap. Pangalawa, huwag na huwag ninyo kalimutan, kung saan man kayo mapunta sa pangarap n’yo, ang mga taong tutumulong sa inyo.
(I just want to say to all of you, don’t ever be afraid to dream. Second, do not forget, wherever your dream leads you, the people who helped you.)
“Pangatlo, kung nasa dulo na kayo ng inyong mga pangarap, at kapag kayo’y nadapa, bumangon na kayo at lagi ninyong tatandaan kung paano kayo nagsimula at kung bakit kayo nasa dulo ng inyong pangarap. At ang panghuli, huwag na huwag kayo matakot magpakatotoo kung alam ninyo na tama naman kayo. Diyan kayo dadalhin ng inyong pangarap, patungo sa inaasam ninyong tagumpay,” she said.
(Third, if you’re at the end of your dreams, and if you fall, get up and always remember how you started and why you’reat the end. And lastly, never be afraid to be yourself if you know you’re right. That’s where your dreams will take you, towards the success that you are hoping for.)
Among other prizes from sponsors, Maymay won a house and lot, and P1 million. – Rappler.com
