The Contest “Miss Universe”
The audience and jury members Catriona conquered not only their appearance, but also the answers to the questions. In the competition, she advocated the use of marijuana for medical purposes, supports Me Too and freedom in the media. And when asked whether countries impose restrictions on the flow of migrants, she said the following:
I think that every country must have their own rules and norms, but for a prosperous society for all of us it is very important to understand that we are all human. We must be open to loving and accepting each other
But most of all the jury members impressed with her response to the question about what the most important lesson she learned in life and how she used this knowledge now, if you became Miss universe.
I work a lot in Tondo, Manila, and other impoverished countries. I see there is some dysfunctional life. But I always try to find good in everything, even in this.
If I could teach people to be thankful for, we would have a wonderful world, where there is no negativity, and the children would smile on the face, she said.
