Q for Miss Philippines: What is the most significant change you've seen in the world in the last 10 years?

Answer by Miss Philippines Maxine Medina: The last 10 years of being here in the world is that I saw all the people being in one event like this in Miss Universe, and it's something big to us that we are one, as one nation, we are all together.

KENYA: Mary Were
QUESTION: “What are you most excited about and what concerns you when it comes to the presidency of Donald Trump?”

ANSWER: “Donald Trump having been elected the president of the United States may not have been the choice of most people in the United States, because of the divided support system for the outgoing president, Barack Obama, who was supporting an upcoming woman president. So many people oppose [Trump’s] position, but I feel that once he took up his position, he was able to unify the entire nation.”

THAILAND: Chalita Suansane
QUESTION: “Name a current or past world leader whom you admire, and why?”

ANSWER: “Mabuhay, Philippines. For me, that would be the King of Thailand. His Majesty has been working tirelessly in behalf of the Thai people ever since I was born. For all the Thai people, His Majesty has been a father to us.”

Iris Mittenaere of France:
Q: Given today's worldwilde refugee crisis, do countries have an obligation to accept refugees or do they have a right to close their borders?" 

A: "The country should have the right to open or close their borders. Throughout the world, people can choose to open or close their borders. In Europe, we have open borders. In France, we want to have the most globalization and we want to have the biggest exchange of people that we can. Maybe someday that will change, but now we have open borders. Having open borders allows us to travel the world and to find out more of what’s happening in the world." 

HAITI: Raquel Pelissier
QUESTION: “On January 21st, an estimated 4.8 million people marched worldwide for human rights, women’s rights, and other issues. If you were able to to participate, what would you have been marching for?”

ANSWER: “One of the women I admire in the world is Eleanor Roosevelt because she fought so much for human rights, and I feel like that’s what we need in the world. We are just one. A hundred thousand years ago, six species of humans lived in the world. Now, we are just one. We all need each other. We need to respect each other.”

COLOMBIA: Andrea Tovar
QUESTION: “Why do you think violence is so prevalent in today's society, and what can we do about it?”

ANSWER: “I come from a country that does have violence, and this is my reference point. And although there are presidents who don’t get along with others, we work together to be able to unite. Campaign, respect, and inclusivity, to be able to have a social transformation that will educate our children.”

Note: The transcript of the remaining Top 6 Finalists will be added here as soon as available.
