Isa si Kylie sa nag-standout sa ibinigay nitong speech.

Mensahe niya, “Three things come to mind when I think of Miss International: culture, education, and international understanding.

“These three work together to make the brand of the Miss International beauty pageant relevant to the global community and to our time.

“If I become Miss International 2016, I will devote myself to cultural understanding and international understanding because I believe that it is with developing in each of us sensitivity to other cultures that we expand our horizons, tolerate difference, and appreciate diversity.
