With the enormous pressure the preparations and the pageant itself will have on her, where does Catriona Gray get her strength?

"My core team which includes my family," she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the Olay #FearlessFirstStep get-together.

"They're who I go to because when I have days when I’m so overwhelmed or I cry, or I think, 'Oh my gosh, what am I doing?'

"I go to God and my core team, and I lift everything to them or I put it on them.

"A lot of times, no one asks, 'How are you, Cat?'

"Everyone asks, 'How are you preparing?' 'How’s the pageant?'

"No one asks, 'How are you? Are you okay?'

"They're that for me, so I’m so blessed to have them.

"They always check up on me and always make sure I’m doing okay.”

So we asked her: How are you Catriona?

She replied, “I’m a mixture of things. I’m all things at once.

"I’m a normal person. I’m a simple girl and, you know, I do have days or moments when I do feel doubtful and especially overwhelmed, which is completely normal."

As mentioned in her previous interview, she's "9.9" (on a scale of 1 to 10) ready for the pageant.

Catriona continued, "I’m taking on such a huge task of representing my country, and it entails pressure whether we like it or not.

"I'm going to give it my best, which is why I care so much about what I am doing."

With answers like these, no doubt that this queen will do well.

Good luck, Catriona!
