Catriona Gray took to social media to mark the third year when she was crowned Miss Universe.
"3 Years Crown-versary photo dump 👑 @missuniverse. Crazy to think that 3 years ago today my dreams came true. And I'm infinitely proud to have represented and brought pride to my country. 🇵🇭," she posted on her Instagram page.
To celebrate the occasion, Catriona shared never-before-seen photos from her Miss Universe journey.
The beauty queen also reflected on her journey after her reign as Miss Universe ended in December 2019 and before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world.
"The years since my reign ended (Dec 2019) have been a rollercoaster. And I know I'm not alone in feeling like I've lost time. Time with loved ones - lost. Plans have been cancelled. Dreams delayed. Collectively, we have faced adversities and challenges," she said.
"But I want to encourage you. Behind every hindrance is an opportunity. Behind every closed door, is one that is set aside, just for you, waiting to be opened. Behind every perceived denial, is a redirection. 🤍 In God's perfect time, dreams come true. Please, just never, ever give up in the pursuit of your purpose," she remarked.
Catriona won the Miss Universe crown in 2018 in Thailand. She is the fourth Filipina to win the Miss Universe title.
