Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, who was Miss Colombia at the Miss Universe pageant this year, shared an uplifting message on social media following the whole fiasco of the pageant. If you somehow haven’t heard, host Steve Harvey accidentally announced the wrong winner, crowning Miss Colombia when it should have been Miss Philippines. Read Ariadna’s message after the break!
Ariadna posted this message on Instagram:
After the storm comes the calm. I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength. Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world. Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this. I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes… Today because of that COLOMBIA and the LATIN COMMUNITY are being talked about in every corner of the world. I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe 🙏🏼. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible. Life continues and in the future we will find out why things happen the way they happen. Thank you all for your LOVE SUPPORT and KINDNESS. ❤️
I completely agree with her that everything happens for a reason. Something tells me the attention she receives from this snafu might actually open up more doors than actually winning the pageant. As Ariadna herself pointed out, Colombia and the Latin community are getting plenty of attention over this. Something tells me she’s going to come back from this stronger than ever!
