Shamcey Supsup was honored by the Senate on October 12, 2011 for her achievement at the Miss Universe 2011 beauty pageant.
The Senate has adopted a resolution that commends the Bb. Pilipinas-Universe for placing 3rd runner-up at the Miss Universe 2011 pageant held last month in Brazil.
The resolution says that Shamcey honored the country especially during the question-and-answer portion where she showed the world her being a Filipino with a strong Catholic faith.
To the final question if whether she would change her religious beliefs to marry the person she loves, Shamcey answered, "If I would have to change my religious beliefs, I would not marry the person that I love. Because the first person that I love is God, who created me. I have my faith and my principles, and this is what makes me who I am. If the person loves me, he’ll love my God, too."
The answer may not have won her the crown but she answered from her heart as a Filipino with a strong Catholic belief.
