South Africa’s Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters showed great wisdom and intelligence in the Q&A portions of the Miss Universe 2017 pageant.
Nel-Peters was crowned as the winner of the prestigious beauty pageant, which was held at The AXIS, Planet Hollywood, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
KAMI learned about her epic answers during the Q&A portion from PEP.ph.
During the Q&A portion for the Top 3 candidates, the South African bet was asked: “what quality in yourself are you most proud of and how will you apply that quality to Miss Universe?”
"As Miss Universe, you have to be confident with who you are as an individual.
"A Miss Universe is a woman that has overcomed many fears and by that, she was able to help other women overcome their fears.
"She is a woman that nothing is able too much to ask for. And I think that is exactly who I am. Thank you."
During the Q&A portion for the final 5 candidates, she was asked: "Women make up 49 percent of the global workplace. What do you believe is the most important issue facing women in the workplace today and why?"
Nel-Peters confidently answered:
"In the workplaces, women get paid 75 percent of what men earn for doing the same job, working the same hours, and I do not believe that that is right.
"I think we should have equal work for equal pay for women all over the world. Thank you."
KAMI wants to congratulate Nel-Peters for making her country proud!
