The host Steve Harvey, asked the lady the winning question that  What is the most important lesson you have learned in your life.how would you apply it to your time as Miss Universe?

Catriona Gray, who has created the charity project Paraiso: the Bright Beginnings Project, that raises money for a pre-school in the city of the Tondo, gave a heartfelt and intelligent reply as the pageant is not just about beauty but beauty with brains that supports a good cause, it is about being beautiful inside out.

Here is the winning reply “I work a lot in the slums of Tondo, Manilla and the life there is very poor and it is very sad. I have always taught myself to look for the beauty in it, to look for the beauty in the faces of the children and to be grateful.

I would bring this aspect as a Miss Universe to see situations with a silver lining. And to ask where I could give something, where I could provide something like a spokesperson. If I could also teach people to be grateful, we would have an amazing world where negativity would not grow and foster and where children would have a smile on their faces.”

The former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel- Peters from South Africa crowned her. She is charming .she said that this title is not for hers but it is for the 104 million Filipinos.

It is a proud moment as the lady win after 3 years. In 2015 the title of Miss Universe is winning by  Pia Wurtzbach. This also makes the Catriona Gray as the fourth Philippines to hold the title in 50 years.
