It was not easy for the lady to win as she was given a very tough question to answer. Here’s the question asked by her:-

Q. Right now there is a protest going on right outside here calling the Miss Universe Pageant disrespectful of women. Convince them they are wrong

 “I think pageants like the Miss Universe pageant gives us young women a platform to foray in the fields that we want to and forge ahead, be it entrepreneurship, be it the armed force, be it politics. It gives us a platform to voice our choices and opinions, and makes us strong, independent that we are today.”
