Answer That Won Harnaaz the Miss Universe Crown

“What advice would you give to young women watching on how to deal with the pressure they face today?” This is the question the diva was asked in the final question and answer round. 

She confidentially said, “The biggest pressure the youth of today is facing is to believe in themselves, to know that you are unique and that's what makes you beautiful. Stop comparing yourselves with others and let's talk about more important things that (are) happening worldwide. I think this is what you need to understand. Come out, speak for yourself because you are the leader of your life, you are the voice of your own. I believed in myself and that's why I am standing here today. Thank you.”

Her inspiring answer was backed by thundering applause.
