Catriona Gray crowned Miss Universe 2018

Catriona Gray crowned Miss Universe 2018

She spoke about Miss Vietnam H'Hen Nie and Miss Cambodia Rern Sinat, who do not speak English, with fellow pageant contestants Miss Australia Francesca Hung and Miss Colombia Valeria Morales. "So when I saw her earlier, she said 'I dreamed this, ' and she had tears in her eyes", the newly-crowned Miss Universe told reporters after her win, per The Philippine Star.

As in the previous year, the Miss Universe pageant selected semifinalists based on geographical regions.

"A few years ago I lost a close friend to health complications with HIV", she said.

We finally have a new Miss Universe.

Filipino designer Mak Tumang, who created the evening gown of Gray in the final competition, said it was inspired by Mayor Volcano which he described as fiery and lovely perfection.

Catriona wore a dazzling and sultry red gown, rocking the stage with her signature "Lava Walk". And that's where we drew inspiration from.

Catriona Gray of Philippines won the much coveted Miss Universe title at the finale ceremony, while Miss South Africa and Miss Venezuela won the respective first and second runner-up spots. Catriona would wear it straight to the Question and Answer segment, and eventually toward the Miss Universe coronation.

Gray attended college in the U.S.at the College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts where she received a degree in Music Theory and developed her skills as a singer. She remains a Filipina television personality today. Because I think if people will argue, then what about alcohol and cigarettes?

"Over the pageant's 67-year history, Bangkok has hosted Miss Universe in 1992 and 2005, with representatives of Thailand also capturing the crown twice in 1965 and 1988", the organization's website reads. Her win earned praise from Filipinos across communities, as well as the controversial president of the Philippines himself, Rodrigo Duterte.

"It's been a pleasure meeting you @iamsteveharveytv and thanks for connecting with me". But there's something about music that can just make you feel in a certain way or can strike a chord.

Gray said her parents taught her never to give up on her dreams when she was younger.

A great travel buddy and definitely not a "scaredy cat", Catriona is always game for heart racing adventures.

The spokesman also said that the victory of Gray set the bar high in Filipina empowerment and would push them to hold their place in the world. She also serves as an HIV/AIDS advocate at Love Yourself PH, an organisation that provides HIV testing, education, and prevention. "There were moments of doubt where I felt overwhelmed and I felt the pressure".
