Miss Universe 2019 Top 5 Q&A

Miss Mexico: Sofia Aragon

QUESTION: Is protest a positive way to create change?

ANSWER: "I believe it because I believe in creating change. And, I do believe in raising our voices. We need to be heard and some of these protests are really powerful and they can create a positive impact. But, I do not believe in violence because violence is always going to create violence. I really believe that what we should do is come together, raise our voices, and make an impact in the best possible way ever through these kind of platforms like Miss Universe, platforms like TED talks. That's why I'm here and I really believe that that's what you should do." 


Miss Thailand: Paweensuda Drouin

QUESTION: What is more important to you, privacy or security? 

ANSWER: "That's a very tough question. I believe that every country has their own government policy to keep us safe, and I believe that it shouldn't cross the line of going into our privacy because we have the right to privacy. But, security is also very important, so I believe that in order to live in a better society, we should also have the government look into a line, a middleground as to where they can come and live together with society." 

Miss Colombia: Gabriela Tafur Nader

QUESTION: What do you believe is the most important issue in women's health and why?

ANSWER: "I think the most important thing is that women are able to choose about their own body. We have to have the option to have quality care so [that] any decision we make about our body, about our health, about our reproduction, will ever put us in risks, especially our lives."

Miss Puerto Rico: Madison Anderson

QUESTION: Should social media platforms respect free speech or regulate what people post?

ANSWER: "I most definitely believe that social media can be a positive aspect in our lives. We can share information, knowledge. However, it can be used in the wrong hands and spur negativity and harm many people so I believe social media should identify the people who are spurring such negativity and hurting self-esteem [of] other people to make sure that they're not abusing the system such as social media."

Miss South Africa: Zozibini Tunzi 

QUESTION: Are leaders of today doing enough to protect their nations against climate change?

ANSWER: "Steve, I think that the future leaders could do a little bit more, but however, I feel like we as individuals ourselves can also play a part in making the climate the way it should be in the future. I mean, we have children protesting for climate and I feel like as adults, we should join as well. We should have cooperations join as well, and the government should take it seriously. I mean, from sixth grade, I've been learning that the climate is deteriorating and the planet is dying, and it is up to us to keep our planet safe. Thank you."

QUESTION: What is the most important thing we should be teaching young girls today?

Miss Mexico: Sofia Aragon

"Steve, it's very important to teach young girls today the importance of their true value. We see so many perfection in social media: perfect lives, perfect bodies, perfect faces, perfect relationships. Nothing is that real. We have to teach them that who they are is already amazing. Who they are is already worth it, because what they really are is not what it looks like. It's what they feel, what they act, and the way they react to the world. I believe a girl is worth for what she has to offer to the world way more than the way she looks. Thank you."

Miss South Africa: Zozibini Tunzi 

"I think the most important thing we should be teaching young girls today is leadership. It's something that has been lacking in young girls and women for a very long time not because they don't want to but because of [what] society has labeled women to be. I think we are the most powerful beings [in] the world and that we should be given every opportunity, and that is what we should be teaching these young girls—to take up space. Nothing is as important as taking up space in society and cementing yourself."


Miss Puerto Rico: Madison Anderson

"There are so many things that I would love to teach young girls if I have the opportunity to be the next Miss Universe such as in a world where so many people wear masks, it's such a beautiful thing to see an authentic soul. So, to embrace your uniqueness, to embrace who you are because you just don't know who you can inspire just by being you. So celebrate that. Thank you."
