Catriona Gray enters Miss Universe Top 3
MANILA, Philippines — Philippine bet Catriona Gray further narrows the chance to win the country’s fourth Miss Universe crown as she entered the pageant’s Top 3.
The candidates were chosen after going through the swimsuit, evening gown, and question and answer competition.
Tamaryn Green of South Africa and Sthefany Gutiérrez of Venezuela also made it to the Top 3.
The three were asked the same question: “What is the most important lesson you’ve learned in your life, and how would you apply it to your time as Miss Universe?”
Gray answered: “I work a lot in the slums of Tondo, Manila and the life there is very poor, sad and I’ve always taught myself to look for the beauty in it, to look in the beauty of the children and be grateful.
“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.
“If I could teach people to be grateful, we could have an amazing world where negativity could not grow and foster and children would have smiles on their faces.”
If Gray wins the Miss Universe crown, she will be the fourth Filipina to do so after Pia Wurtzbach in 2015, Margie Moran in 1973, and Gloria Diaz in 1969. /cbb
