What is needed to become Miss Universe? Being Miss Universe requires more than just physical attractiveness; it also requires kindness, intelligence, and wit. Gray exhibited these qualities already, as evidenced by the response to her win as Miss Philippines.

He was asked the following question in the last round:

What is the most significant lesson you have ever learnt, and how will you use it throughout your time as Miss Universe?

Katherine Gray answered as follows:

“I work a lot and live in the Tondo slum in Manila, where life is miserable and depressing. And I’ve always trained myself to appreciate that and to recognise the beauty in everything, including children’s faces. And if I win Miss Universe, I’ll go above and beyond to ensure that these kids live happy, healthy lives. We may have a great society where negativity doesn’t flourish and kids can smile if I can teach people to be appreciative.”
