Gray, who expressed her love for her country throughout the competition, says that she will try to do what is expected of her as the new Miss Universe. "She told me, 'I dreamed you would do this!' When I was 13, my mom told she dreamed of me winning Miss Universe in a red dress", Gray told ABS-CBN News.
She continued: "In a moment where I meant to admire the courage of a few of my sisters, I said something that I now realise can be perceived as not respectful, and I apologise".
We are all overcome with emotion and excitement as another Filipina becomes a strong contender for Miss Universe.
Gray also worked in a tribute to the Mayon volcano of the Philippines with her sparkling crimson gown created to resemble the swirling red and orange lava that flows down the cone-shaped volcano's crater. And that's where we drew inspiration from.More news: Huawei CFO facing fraud charges, court says

Newly crowned 2019 Miss Universe Catriona Gray, of Philippines, waves during the final of 67th Miss Universe competition in Bangkok, Thailand. The final of the Miss Universe competition is watched by nearly every household in the country, and the national pride that comes from the competition is palpable from both the contestants and the audience. The 24-year-old final-year medical student from Worcester is a survivor and a fighter. She remains a Filipina television personality today.
Later in the video Summers appeared to express sympathy for Miss Cambodia, Rern Sinat, who she said, "doesn't speak any English and not a single other person speaks her language". Because I think if people were to argue, 'what about alcohol and cigarettes?' So everything is good but in moderation.
"It's just a feeling in a way that everything else wasn't". Harvey joked briefly about the incident in exchanges with contestants, saying, "You all can't let that go" and "I'm still here".
Gray said her parents taught her never to give up on her dreams when she was younger. "These are the moments that matter most to me". Heart-racing adventures, like zipline, are always game for her.
"With the eyes of the world and the entire Filipino nation on you, you chose to highlight your work with the poor, and to send a much-needed message of hope to all". And as she volunteered for Young Focus, an NGO advocating education for impoverished children, she saw the bad plight of street kids in Tondo.
