Below is the full transcript of their answers:

MISS SOUTH AFRICA

"I think the most important thing we should be teaching young girls today is leadership.

"It's something that has been lacking in young girls and women for a very long time not because we don't want to but because of what society has labeled women to be.

"I think we are the most powerful beings on the world, and that we should be given every opportunity.

"And that is what we should be teaching these young girls—to take up space. Nothing is important as taking up space in society."

MISS PUERTO RICO

"There are so many things that I would love to teach young girls if I have the opportunity to be the next Miss Universe.

"Such as in a world... It's such a beautiful thing to see an authentic soul so to embrace your uniqueness, to embrace who you are.

"Because you just don't know who you inspire just by being you. So celebrate that."

MISS MEXICO

"Steve, it's very important to teach young girls today the importance of their true value.

"We see so many perfection in social media—perfect lives, perfect bodies, perfect faces, perfect relationships. Nothing is that... is that real.

"We have to teach them that who they are is pretty amazing. Who they are is already worth it.

"Because what they really are is not what it looks like. It is what they feel, what they act, and the way they react to the world.

"I believe a girl is worth for what she has to offer to the world way more than the way she looks."
