Gorgeous, glamorous, grounded, bubbly, relaxed and ready for the job. These are the best descriptions of how the new Miss Universe, Catriona Gray from the Philippines, started her Media Week in New York. The title that was written in the stars for her is more than to her, it’s a passion and it shows. Gray appeared on Good Morning America and Live With Kelly and Ryan on Monday morning and impressed viewers with her beauty and charm.

Without a hint of nerves, Gray spoke about her life, her victory, her goals and also her mother’s dream that she would win Miss Universe in a red dress. During her appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan, she turned to the audience who were cheering loudly and acknowledged her countrymen in the audience who were there to support her. “Filipino fans are the best fans in the world,” Catriona proclaimed with a huge smile.

She also spoke about how she spend her 25th birthday on Sunday. “It has been like a celebration all week. I saw Broadway, I had a bit of a food trip, I went to Hillsong. It was amazing!”

Fans on social media were quick to praise the new Queen of the Universe for her composure and how engaged she was in every interview. She also granted an interview to Celebrity Page TV, which will be out later this week. And of course, there was some time in between for some snaps in the Big Apple.

Opinion: I have always been a firm believer in never giving up on your dreams or goals. Hard work, dedication and self-belief will lead you to where you have to be. This role was clearly supposed to be yours and it is so beautiful to watch you enjoy this so much. I am so incredibly happy for you. You go, Catriona!
