What did Miss Universe Harnaaz Sandhu say after getting the title
When someone asked Ms Sandhu what advice she would give to the young women on how to deal with the pressures they face, she replied, “The biggest pressure the youth of today is facing is to believe in themselves, to know that you are unique and that’s what makes you beautiful. Stop comparing yourselves with others and let’s talk about more important things that’s happening worldwide.” She added, “This is what you need to understand. Come out, speak for yourselves because you are the leader of your life, you are the voice of your own. I believed in myself and that’s why I am standing here today.”
The contestants were asked as being part of the top three rounds, “What advice would you give to young women watching on how to deal with the pressures they face today”
Harnaaz said on this, “The biggest pressure the youth of today is facing, is to believe in themselves. To know that you are unique makes you beautiful. Stop comparing yourselves with others and let’s talk about more important things that are happening worldwide. Come out, speak for yourself, because you are the leader of your life. You are the voice of your own. I believed in myself and that is why I am standing here today.”
Similarly, in the top 5 she was asked “Many people think climate change is a hoax, what would you do to convince them otherwise?”
Harnaaz amazed all when she replied by saying, “Honestly my heart breaks to see how nature is going through a lot of problems, and it is all due to our irresponsible behaviour. I totally feel that this is the time to take action and talk less. Because each action could save or kill nature. Preventing and protecting is better than repent and repair and this is what I am trying to convince you guys today.”
These were the words she spoke about her preparation for representing India for the Miss Universe Crown, during an interaction at Times Fresh Face 2021:
“I believe I am the only candidate who got the shortest time to prepare, but the team has been putting in a lot of effort to bring the best version out of India. And I am getting a lot of training, be it in terms of communication or putting myself out there confidently. I promise to each one of you that you will enjoy the process – all these efforts will not go in vain.”
