We have a new Miss Universe from Angola, Africa and a soon-to-be household name: Leila Lopes.
Most of you may remember the south central African nation of Angola as taking a spanking from America’s First Dream Team, but they now have a major victory thanks to the beautiful Leila Lopes.
What may have won the judges over was Miss Angola’s answer to her interview question.
When asked what she would change in the way of her physical characteristics, she answered:
“Thank God I’m very satisfied with the way God created me and I wouldn’t change a thing. I consider myself a woman endowed with inner beauty. I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family and I intend to follow these for the rest of my life.”
A response like that shows true humility and grace, setting Leila apart from her competition.
The other women who ranked in the top 5 included Miss Brazil, Miss China, Miss Philippines and 23-year-old Miss Ukraine Olesia Stefanko, who was the first runner-up.
