"For me, being Miss Universe is not just about knowing how to speak a specific language. It’s about being able to influence and inspire other people. If you have a heart to serve and a strong mind to show people then you can be Miss Universe."
-Miss Philippines Janine Tugonon, First Runner-up - Miss Universe 2012.
For us Filipinos, Janine, you are the real Miss Universe winner. We’re so proud of you.
