Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi pass the crowned to Miss Mexico Andrea Meza.
During the final Q&A, Meza was asked: “If you were the leader of your country. How would you have handled COVID-19 pandemic?”
Miss Mexico Andrea Meza answered:
“I believe there’s not a perfect way to handle this for situations, such as COVID-19. However, I believe that what I would have done was create a lockdown even before everything was that big. Because we lost so many lives and we cannot afford that. We have to take care of our people. That’s why I would have taken care of them since the beginning.”
For her Final Word, Meza shared the following message as translated by an interpreter.
“We live in a society that more and more is more in advanced. as we advance as a society, we also advance in stereotypes. 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 you are not valuable.”
