TRANSCRIPT: Miss Universe 2022 Top 3 Q&A Portion
Wow, all three of them delivered powerful answers!
The selection committee at the 71st Miss Universe coronation night must have had a hard time picking this year's winner, as the chosen Top 3 delegates did a great job at the much-awaited final Q&A segment.
This part of the Miss Universe 2022 competition was particularly nerve-wracking, but these three beauty queens were cool, calm, and collected as they delivered their answers. Andreína Martínez of Dominican Republic, R'Bonney Gabriel of USA, and Amanda Dudamel of Venezuela were all asked the same question by host Jeannie Mai:
"If you win Miss Universe, how would you work to demonstrate this as an empowering and progressive organization?"
Here are the answers of the Miss Universe 2022 Top 3 delegates at the final Q&A portion:
Dominican Republic - Andreína Martínez
"I understand the Miss Universe organization is looking for an ambassador, someone who's able to communicate a message. I have been working for women's rights for so long as I can remember. It's been my action to every single day. I'm here to demonstrate that no matter where you come from, your background does not define you. Your courage and determination do. And I will show that by working every single day, showing my leadership and determination. Thank you."
USA - R'Bonney Gabriel
"Well, I will use it to be a transformational leader. As a very passionate designer who's been sewing for 13 years, I use fashion as a force for good. In my industry, I'm cutting down on pollution through recycled materials when I make my clothing. I teach sewing classes to women that have survived human trafficking and domestic violence. And I say that because it is so important to invest in others, invest in our community and use your unique talent to make a difference. We all have something special and when we plant those seeds to other people in our life, we transform them and we use that as a vehicle for change."
Venezuela - Amanda Dudamel
"If I get to win Miss Universe, I will follow the legacy that many women across the universe has showed to be part of this organization. Because Miss Universe has demonstrated that they choose women who inspire with their messages and transform with their actions. And that's precisely what I would like to do. I'm a fashion designer by profession but I'm a designer of dreams."
In the end, it was R'Bonney Gabriel's (USA) overall performance that stood out, as she was named Miss Universe 2022 at the coronation night held on January 14, 2023 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States.
