Early life and education[edit]

Before studying in Manila, she helped her father on a farm.[9]

Supsup graduated salutatorian in grade school and salutatorian in high school. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of the Philippines Diliman with architecture as her field of discipline.[9]

She topped the Philippines' licensure examination for architects in June 2010 with a board rating of 86.60%.[8]


Binibining Pilipinas 2011[edit]

In 2011, Supsup joined the 48th edition of the Binibining Pilipinas pageant. During the question and answer portion, she was asked: "With what worthy cause do you identify yourself and why?" She responded:[10]

"I think one worthy cause I can identify myself is valuing education because I believe that education is something that cannot be taken away from you. You can have money, you can have fame. But in the end, it can be taken from you. But education will always be there to help you in your life."[10]

At the end of the event, Supsup won the title of Binibining Pilipinas Universe 2011 during the coronation night held at the Araneta Coliseum on April 10, 2011 alongside the Miss Philippine Airlines, Miss Talent and Miss Creamsilk awards.[11][12]

Miss Universe 2011[edit]

Supsup represented the Philippines at the Miss Universe 2011 pageant held in São Paulo, Brazil, on 12 September 2011. She became popular on the said competition because of her "Tsunami Walk". During the question and answer portion, she was asked: "Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love? Why and why not?" She responded:[15]

"If I had to change my religious beliefs, I will not marry the person that I love because the first person that I love is God, who created me. And I have my faith, my principles, and this is what makes me who I am. And if that person loves me, he should love my God too."[15]

At the end of the event, she finished as 3rd Runner-Up to Leila Lopes of Angola.[4] In 2019, she became the national director of the Miss Universe franchise in the Philippines, succeeding her former mentor and pageant director, Stella Araneta.[6][7]
