Good evening to all of you. I would like to start thanking God and the Filipino people, thank you very much to all of you.
In the years that I have appeared on this very same stage, my biggest realization is that you should never give up on your dreams. We should never waiver in our perseverance and never let obstacle hinder our progress. We should have a strong heart and a prepared mind to strong that into reality.
In this moment, I’d like to express my sincerest gratitude to the people who have helped me win Miss Universe. If it wasn’t for you, I would not achieved this humble achievements.
To my successor, just remember to give your best. Behind that beautiful gown, your knees may be trembling. I’m still not used to it. Being in front of millions of people is nerve-wracking but we have to remember that you are proudly wearing our sash that says ‘Philippines.’ Believe me in your moments of doubt, you just have to remember that you have the whole country cheering you on. Tonight, I feel like I’m graduating from Binibini. Tonight is the beginning of a journey for a confidently beautiful Pilipina!
