All of the top five were competent enough for the crown but Miss Mexico might have impressed the judges with her answer in the final but most important part of the competition, the question and answer portion. She was asked “In your opinion, what is that unsupervised internet use having on today’s youth?” Here is her answer:
“I do believe that internet use is an indispensable necessary tool for the present time, and we should be very careful and watch over what our children watch and see, our teenagers’ watch and see, and we must make sure that we teach them the values that we learn as a family.”
Congratulations Miss Mexico!
