Miss Universe 2020- Andrea Meza
“We live in a society that is more and more and more advanced. As we’ve advanced as a society, we’ve also advanced with stereotypes. Nowadays, beauty isn’t only the way we look. For me, beauty radiates not only in our spirits, but in our hearts and the way we conduct ourselves. Never permit someone to tell you that you’re not valuable”.
1st Runner-Up Brazil – Julia Gama
“Mental health is still a very stigmatized topic and keeps us from giving us the right assistance to those in need. May we all tonight remember to normalize conversations about anxiety or depression. We all hurt sometimes. But we don’t need to face it alone. May we all come together. Because togetherness is our strength”.
2nd Runner-Up Peru – Janick Maceta Del Castillo
“It is our collective responsibility to start taking action in order to save our planet. Just little by little, we can start making difference. Little by little, by recycling, by teaching young generations about taking care of our beautiful earth. We’re just here for one time. And this is the time that we have to start taking care of it”.
3rd Runner-Up India – Adline Castelino
“We’ve seen many protest in the recent days. I want to point out the protests women have made throughout the years with equal rights. Until today, we are lacking them. Protests help us in raising our voice against what’s happening against inequality. It helps minorities in any democracy to raise their voice. Every right comes with a responsibility, so use it with power”.
4th Runner-Up Dominican Republic – Kímberly Jiménez
“During this Pandemic, my country Dominican Repubic has risen 23% poverty rate. For me, being able to be in front of all of you guys, representing Dominican Republic, makes me incredibly proud that it will help my tourism. We, as human beings, have to realize there are so many people out there that need our help and that we can overcome anything”.
