To loud cheers from the audience, she answered:

As Miss Universe, you have to be confident in who you are as an individual. Miss Universe is a woman who has overcome many fears and by that she is able to help many other women overcome their fears. She is a woman that nothing is ever too much to ask for and I think that is exactly what I am.
