TRANSCRIPT: Miss Grand International Top 5 finalists' Q&A

By Camille Santiago Published Dec 04, 2021 11:52 pm

The question and answer portion of a beauty pageant can be nerve-wracking, but it's also the candidates' last chance for the audience to get to know them better.

For this year's Miss Grand International Q&A, which was held in Bangkok, Thailand on Dec. 4, the Top 5 candidates were asked the same question. With the current world situation, there are many problems such as Human Rights, economy, viruses. If you were to choose one person to discuss these problems with you in order to make a change, who would you choose and why? 

See how the ladies answered below:

NGUYEN THUC THUY TIEN, Vietnam
Miss Grand International

If I have the chance to choose the one I would speak to, I would like to say thank you to the one who invented AstraZeneca (vaccine) she doesn't need the money from the invention license. And I was thanks to her and to all people to know that I feel grateful because of her. Sometimes you need to do the good things but don't get the credit for it. Thank you.

ANDREA AGUILERA, Ecuador
Miss Grand International 1st Runner-Up

If I have to choose just one person to talk with her, I have to choose a person that I feel identified with her. And this person is Malala Yuzefai. She know we can achieve whatever we want just, when a child, a book, and a pencil. And I'll tell her she is not alone. We are together, together with this idea. Thank you so much.

LORENA RODRIGUES, Brazil

I will choose Jair Bolsonaro, the President of Brazil. And I would tell you, Jair, "No guys, not this way. We need support, health care. We need education. Please, take care of your country. Do your job." Thank you.

VIVIANIE ARROYO, Puerto Rico
Miss Grand International 3rd Runner-up

As someone who belives in the power of dialogue and human rights, I would meet up with the President of the United Nations so that he can reunite the leaders of our powerful countries to talk about how we can help to promote inclusivity, diversity, and change. And only like that we can truly have peace. Thank you.

JEANE VAN DAM, South Africa 
Miss Grand International 4th Runner-up

If I have the opportunity to talk to one person about this matter, I would talk to the president of my country Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa. I would tell him that he did an amazing job, but one thing lacks. Our country needs to be reminded that they have a responsibility to vaccinate. They need to take other people's lives in consideration. Vaccination should be compulsory in my country.
