“I mean, I’m happy for her. She did what she wanted to do,” pahayag ni Catriona sa video interview na ipinost ng TV5 reporter na si MJ Marfori nitong Martes, July 31.

Dugtong ng kandidata ng Pilipinas sa Miss Universe 2018, “She competed, she earned the right to represent her country.

"So she did what was available to her, which was the discretion of the organization naman, so we should be celebrating her.

“She is giving a voice, a platform for the transgender community din, so I think that’s very nice.”

Hindi rin daw isyu sa kanyang makalaban sa Miss Universe pageant ang isang trans woman.

“I mean, it’s all fair competition naman.

"She’s just a candidate from another country as am I, so, yeah."

MISS UNIVERSE IN THAILAND

Ikinatuwa naman ni Catriona ang announcement na sa Thailand gaganapin ang Miss Universe 2018.

Aniya, “Kasi malapit lang.

"Ang mga Pinoys don’t need a visa, so ang saya-saya, di ba?

"And I love Thailand. I’ve been [there] multiple times."

Nakatakdang ganapin ang pageant sa Bangkok, Thailand sa December 16, 2018.

Tiniyak din ng Pinay beauty queen na hindi siya tumitigil sa paghahanda para sa sasalihang pageant.

“I’m not one person to say, ‘Ay, perfect na iyan, I’m okay.’

"I’m never like that, like, there’s always something can be improved, something can be learned, something to be better.

“So I’m a perfectionist kasi.”
