Our very own Catriona Gray has just been crowned Miss Universe 2018. But before she claimed the crown, Cat and the rest of the Top 3 contestants had the opportunity to give their Final Word on the same question: "What is the most important lesson you've learned in your life, and how would you apply it to your time as Miss Universe?"

Here are their answers:  

1. Miss Philippines: Catriona Gray (Miss Universe 2018)

Answer: "I worked a lot in the slums of Tondo, Manila. And the life there…it's poor, and it's very sad. And I've always taught myself to look for the beauty in it. To look in the beauty in the faces of the children, and to be grateful. And 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, and 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 faces."

2. Miss South Africa: Tamaryn Green (First Runner-Up)

Answer: "Throughout my life, I've been exposed to both those who are privileged and underprivileged. And what I’ve learned is that we are all human. We all want to be loved, we all want to belong, and we all want to be seen, so we should treat each other that way. Thank you.”

3. Miss Venezuela: Sthefany Gutiérrez (Second Runner-Up)

Answer: "I grew up in a family filled with women and each one of them taught me something very important. But what I always remember is that by working hard and chasing for our dreams, and by having courage and strength and willingness to achieve these dreams, we can achieve anything we want in this lifetime. And tonight I am proving this, I am here at Miss Universe."
