Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray revealed interesting facts about herself and answered pageant questions on the TWBA Fast Talk Challenge. The Capricorn beauty considers french fries as her guilty pleasure; and sinigang as her favorite food. She mentioned Prince Eric of The Little Mermaid as her childhood crush. “If something is worth doing, then it’s worth doing well,” says her motto in life. Ambitious, purposeful, and loving are the three words that best describe her. “Love is unconditional and best for family,” Catriona’s own definition of love.
The beauty queen, who names Dua Lipa as her girl-crush, is certain that she doesn’t need a man to thrive. “Men because women have to carry a child and give birth and it comes with hormonal changes and balancing career with family. I feel like men have more freedom when it comes to that aspect,” asserted Catriona when asked who between men and women have an easier life.
If she could be a literary or fictional character, Catriona would like to become Katniss Everdeen of “Hunger Games” “because she’s a strong female leader who rose up from a very lowly place and became an icon of hope for her country”.
“I would want to increase the facilities here for the Department of Health to address things like HIV Testing to make it more accessible to the provinces and people. Also, support programs and allow people to be more educated and more informed, so that we could stop the AIDS epidemic”, her response when asked how she would spend a billion dollars.
The beauty queen said that sweet comments like “Ang ganda mo!” never fail to make her blush.
Catriona believes that the essence of being a woman “is being a source of life and knowing the responsibility and the magic that that holds”
