Nigel Barker, one of the judges, asked her this question:
"AS AN INTERNATIONAL AMBASSADOR, DO YOU BELIEVE THAT SPEAKING ENGLISH SHOULD BE A PREREQUISITE TO BEING MISS UNIVERSE? WHY OR WHY NOT?"
"For me, being Miss Universe is not just about knowing how to speak a specific language. It's about being able to influence and inspire other people. If you have a heart to serve and a strong mind to show people then you can be Miss Universe.
|and Miss Universe 2012 is Miss USA!|
