What’s your version? 🙂

Here’s the original version as documented by Spot PH.

What is the most important [lesson] you’ve learned in your life and how would you apply it to your time as Miss Universe? Gray had just about the perfect answer, saying, “I work a lot in the slums of Tondo, Manila and the live there is very—it’s poor and it’s very sad. And I’ve always taught myself to look for the beauty in it—to look for beauty in the faces of children and to be grateful. And I would bring this aspect as a Miss Universe to see situations with a silver lining and to assess where I could give something, where I could provide something as a spokesperson. And this, I think, if I could [also] teach people to be grateful, we could have an amazing world where negativity would not grow and foster and children would have a smile on their face. Thank you!”

We are all thankful for Catriona Gray’s great representation of the Filipinos during the pageant! 🙂

Indeed a silver lining in everything.

New year is just around the corner, what were you most grateful for in 2018? What were the most important lessons you learned in 2018 that you will bring and apply in 2019?
