There's a new Miss Universe and she hails from Mexico!
After being delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Miss Universe pageant made its return and crowned a new Miss Universe. 26-year-old Andrea Meza was crowned the new Miss Universe. Meza beat out 73 other women representing their countries and territories, including runner-up, Miss Brazil and second runner-up, Miss Peru.
During her final statement, Meza was given the topic of changing beauty standards, and offered an inspiring answer.
"We live in a society that more and more is more than advanced, and as we advance as a society, we've also advanced with stereotypes," she said. "Nowadays beauty isn't only the way we look. For me, beauty radiates not only in our spirit, but in our hearts and the way that we conduct ourselves. Never permit someone to tell you that you're not valuable."
Congratulations Miss Mexico on being crown Miss Universe!
