Miss Philippines Catriona Gray Crowned Miss Universe 2018. Catriona Gray won the 2018 Miss Universe pageant.

“What is the most important lesson you’ve learned in your life and how would you apply it to your time as Miss Universe?”

Catriona responded, “I work a lot in the slums of Tondo, Manila and the life there is very… it’s poor and it’s very sad. I’ve always taught myself to look for the beauty in it, to look in the beauty of the faces of the children and to be grateful. And I would bring this aspect as a Miss Universe to see situations with a silver lining, and to assess where I could give something, where I could provide something as a spokesperson. And this, I think, if I could teach also people to be grateful, we could have an amazing world where negativity could not grow and foster, and children will have a smile on their faces. Thank you.”
