Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters has been crowned Miss Universe 2017. Miss Jamaica Davina Bennett was second runner-up and Miss Columbia Laura Gonzalez was runner-up.
During the competition, the 22-year-old wowed the judges with her brains, beauty and charisma.
“What quality in yourself are you most proud of and how will you apply that quality to your time as Miss Universe?”
As Miss Universe you have to be confident in who you are as an individual. And Miss Universe is a woman that has overcome many fears and by that she is able to help other women to overconme their fears. She is a woman that nothing is ever too much to ask for and I think that is exactly who I am.”
Nel-Peters “recently earned her degree in Business Management at North West University after making history at her high school for holding two leadership positions.”
