Catriona Gray’s final message as Miss Universe 2018


DUBAI – Catriona Gray bid goodbye as Miss Universe 2018 with a final message to fans: “When we raise our voices together, the words ‘women power’ become more than just a phrase – they become a movement”.

Gray Gray made her final walk onstage at the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia to cap off her year-long reign on Monday (December 9 in UAE). She passed on the crown to Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa.

Here’s the transcript of Catriona’s final message as Miss Universe:

I’ve always believe that as women, we have the power to redefine our generation. When we raise our voices together, the words “women power” become more than just a phrase – they become a movement. I wanted my reign to be a year with purpose. From advocating for quality education for all to raising awareness for HIV/AIDs, I’ve strived to use my voice for good.

Thank you to mom and dad for always believing in me, to Paula and Esther for your mentorship, the Miss Universe organization, and to team Catriona, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

And to my beloved Philippines, isang [karangalan] po ito (this is an honor). You endlessly inspire me and give me hope. Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat (Thank you very much to all of you).

Above all, thank you God. I lift everything up to glorify and honor you.

As I close this chapter, I do so with a grateful heart. To everyone with a dream, know that your dreams are valid, and on your path you are never denied, and only redirected.
