Catriona Gray did her final walk as Miss Universe 2018 on Monday, moments before Miss South Africa Zozibini Tunzi was crowned winner.

Clad in a blue, Philippine Eagle-inspired gown by Mak Tumang, the Filipina-Australian beauty queen took the Miss Universe stage at the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia as the title-holder for one last time to loud, enthuastic cheers before turning over her crown.

 

 

Her final speech reads as follows:

"I've always believed that as women, we have the power to redefine our generation. When we raise our voices together, the words 'women power' become more than just a phrase, they become a movement.

"I wanted my year to be a reign with purpose, from advocating for quality education for all to raising awareness to HIV and AIDS. I've start to use my voice for good. Thank you to mom and dad for always believing in me. Paula and Ester for your mentorship, the Miss Universe Organization and Team Catriona, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"And to my beloved Philippines, isang karangalan po ito. You endlessly inspire me and give me hope. Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat. Above all, thank you God. I lift everything to glorify and honor you. As I close this chapter, I do so with a grateful heart.

"To everyone with a dream, know that your dreams are valid. On your path you are never denied and only redirected."
