Before the final announcement of the winners at the 72nd Miss Universe competition held on Nov. 19 in El Salvador, the Top 3 delegates had to answer the same question in 30 seconds.
They were all asked: "If you could live one year in another woman’s shoes, who would you choose and why?"
Here’s how they answered:
Miss Thailand Anntonia Porsild
"I would choose Malala Yousafzai because I know the struggles she had to deal with in order to get where she is today. She has to fight for women’s education and fight for all women to be able to stand strong and be the change and lead by example. If I could choose anyone that would be her."
Miss Australia Moraya Wilson
"I would live my mother’s year, in her birth year. Because she is a very strong woman; she’s tough, she taught me how to work hard, she taught me how to be brave, how to be strong, and I’m forever grateful for those lessons that she taught me."
Miss Nicaragua Sheynnis Palacios
"I would choose Mary Wollstonecraft because she opened the gap in paving opportunity to many women and what I would do, I would want that gap, that income gap, would open up so that women could work in any area that they choose to work in because there are no limitations for women. That was 1750, now in 2023, we’re making history."
