Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray has been everyone’s favorite even before the coronation night. During the pre-pageant competition, Catriona slayed the universe with her signature lava walk, feisty smize and unique poses. On the night when she was crowned as the most beautiful woman in the universe, Catriona proved that there was more to her than her slow motion turn and physical attributes. Catriona showed everyone that she is blessed with wit and intelligence as well when she nailed the Q and A portion.
On her final question, Catriona was asked the biggest contribution she may bring if she would bag the title. Catriona gave a concise and cheesy answer; mentioning her volunteer works in the slums of Tondo, Manila. In the middle of her speech, Catriona squeezed in the words silver lining; a term that has become popular in Filipino conversations since then.
Catriona says silver lining is not actually part of her daily vocabulary. While answering her final question, Catriona simply stated what is in her heart. The speech was never pre-memorized and everything just came out from her core.
