On this day kasi, December 17, three years ago, natupad ang pangarap ni Catriona Gray na masungkit ang Miss Universe crown para sa bansa sa ginanap na beauty pageant sa Bangkok, Thailand.

Napa-throwback si Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray para i-celebrate ang kanyang third “crowniversary.”

On this day kasi, December 17, three years ago, natupad ang pangarap n’yang masungkit ang Miss Universe crown para sa bansa sa ginanap na beauty pageant sa Bangkok, Thailand. 

“Crazy to think that 3 years ago today my dreams came true. And I'm infinately (sic) proud to have represented and brought pride to my country,” panimula ni Catriona sa kanyang Instagram post. 

Kalakip nito ang ilan sa mga never-before-seen snaps sa kanyang naging journey in winning the Philippines’ fourth Miss Universe crown. 

Pagpapatuloy ng beauty queen and humanitarian aid worker, napuno raw ng ups and downs ang journey n’ya a few months after she relinquished the crown in 2019. Pagpasok kasi ng taong 2020 ay iba’t ibang kalamidad ang tumama sa bansa na sinabayan pa ng COVID-19 pandemic.

“The years since my reign ended (Dec 2019) have been a rollercoaster,” aniya. “And I know I'm not alone in feeling like I've lost time. Time with loved ones - lost. Plans have been cancelled. Dreams delayed. Collectively, we have faced adversities and challenges.”

Pero hindi daw natitinag ang Pinay beauty queen at 'yon daw ang gusto n'yang maging mindset din ng kanyang mga followers. 

“But I want to encourage you. Behind every hindrance is an opportunity. Behind every closed door, is one that is set aside, just for you, waiting to be opened. Behind every perceived denial, is a redirection,” lahad pa n’ya. 

“In God's perfect time, dreams come true. Please, just never, ever give up in the pursuit of your purpose,” pagtatapos ni Catriona.

You are truly inspiring, Queen Cat!
