Catriona Gray Emotional Speech at Bb. Pilipinas 2019
Bb. Pilipinas 2018 and Ms. Universe 2018 Catriona Gray said bid farewell to her Bb. Pilipinas 2018 crown.
Catriona got emotional while delivering her speech.
“Philippines! My heart is overflowing with gratitude, because here, on this exact stage, I was given the chance to pursue this dream.
This journey has been made even more meaningful, because every single step of the way I felt each and every one of you right there with me.
I am so humbled and immensely grateful to each and every one of you, who has given true meaning to feeling the love and support of the Filipino people.
I knew I had a big role to step up to once the Miss Universe Philippines sash was placed across my heart. Along the way, I had to surmount 3 mountains, to conquer 3 Mayon Volcanos.
The first one was conquering myself. Like every single person, I had to overcome the fear that comes from within.
The fear of falling short, the fear of failure, the fear of not measuring up. But I conquered my fear with faith. Faith that God purposely set me on this path and that He would not give me a burden too heavy to carry. And faith in myself, because I knew that I was not perfect.
But I knew I’m determined. And I knew that out of all 95 women that I was to compete with in Miss Universe. I would be the one and only Filipina, and that gave me strength.”
