Miss Universe was held in Eilat, Israel
Two Indians won the title before – Sushmita Sen in 1994 and Lara Dutta in 2000. In her crown-clinching answer, she said that one should believe in themselves.
Her complete answer – “The biggest pressure the youth face today is to believe in themselves. Know that you are unique, and that’s what makes you beautiful. Stop comparing yourselves with others, and let’s talk about more important things that are happening worldwide. I think this is what you need to understand. Come out, speak for yourself because you are the leader of your life. You are the voice of your own. I believed in myself, and that’s why I’m standing here today.”
