About an hour or so ago, a young lass from Barangay Katangawan, General Santos City was crowned as the Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2011 in front of thousands at the Araneta Coliseum and before hundreds of thousands tuned in on their TV sets at home.

Take a bow, Chamsey Supsup!!


Ms. Shamcey Supsup was actually born in Iligan City in May 16, 1986 but her family moved to General Santos City where she grew up in Barangay Katangawan.  According to her father, Timoteo, a farmlot owner, in an interview by ABS-CBN Soccsksargen, Shamcey spent her Kindergarten and Elementary years at the formerly named Notre Dame of Lagao (now Notre Dame of Gen. Santos City) where she was honed by the Dominican sisters.

Later on, she proceeded to secondary school at the Mindanao State University High School but only stayed there for one year before flying off to Manila with her mom, Marcelina who was working there for Filinvest Alabang, as an inhouse Civil Engineer.  She eventually finished her high school education at the Makati City High School as class salutatorian.

Shamcey, taking off from her mother took up B.S. Architecture at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City.  There, she graduated as Magna Cum Laude.  A year later, in June 2010, she topped the Architectural Board Exams, landing among the Top 10 passers.

Less than a year after that feat, the 24-year old general who stands 5’7 1/4 and has heavenly body proportions of 32 1/2- 23 1/2 – 33 1/2 was crowned Bb. Pilipinas – Universe!

2011 Bb. Pilipinas Universe Shamcey Supsup will be representing the Philippines at the Ms. Universe Pageant in Sao Paolo, Brazil in September this year!

Below is her winning moments caught on Youtube.
