This Is Why Catriona Gray Is More Than Just The Crown

Even in a world ravaged by skepticism, one cannot discount the fact that the ascendancy of prophecy is very much in play in the affairs of the modern world. No, this isn’t your saturated astrology analogy nor is it an exaltation of Nostradamus and his spine-chilling predictions from the 16th century. It will be an almost exhaustive exercise to detail how fate weaves its assigned destinies to us mere mortals, much like how the ancient Greeks have believed the Moirai to do so, but nothing is more clear-cut of this literature than the unraveling of the life of one Miss Catriona Gray.

“I never dreamed of being a beauty queen. But it’s hard to justify when it’s like, ‘Well, when you were five, you were in Little Miss Philippines, right?’ Blame my mom for that. My mom and my dad are just the proudest parents, and I’m very blessed to have supportive parents,” she reveals in her Build Series interview during her much-talked about media week blitz since her assumption of her role as Miss Universe. “But yeah, I was five years old, I did Little Miss Philippines. I don’t remember much, but I know that in the talent competition, I danced and lip-synced to Stop by the Spice Girls. I had a matching silver outfit, and I was yeah, feeling myself.”

Call it what you will, fortuitous coincidence, divine providence, or a master plan revealed by fate itself, but one of significant things that made Catriona Gray clinch the coveted Mikimoto crown during the Miss Universe finals was her all-encompassing and impassioned answer when asked what the most important lesson she’s learned in her life, and how she can apply it as Miss Universe. As if anchored by just one draw of breath, she confidently and very calmly articulated what would now be canon in the history of pageantry: “I’ve always taught myself to look for the beauty in it, to look for the beauty in the faces of the children, and to be grateful. 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,” she says, rousing the packed audience at the cavernous Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand. “If I could teach also people to be grateful, we could have an amazing world where negativity could not grow and foster, and children would have a smile on their face. Thank you.”
