On Monday, January 30, 2017 (Philippine date, January 29 in the US), Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Universe 2015, crowned her successor Miss France, Iris Mittenaere, as the new Miss Universe 2016 at the Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines.

Before the winner was pronounced, the top three candidates were each asked question that is the same for all. The question asked them to name something they failed at in their lives and the lessons learned from there.

Iris answered that she remembers in her first year in medical school where she studied dental surgery, she failed in her first test and at first she felt devastated. However, she decided to brace herself and bought another book of medicine instead of harping all day about that past failure. Although the examination results were later changed as there had been a mistake and found out she passed, she learned to stand up and to keep going after any failure. She added on to say that even if she would not take the position of being crowned Miss Universe 2016, she would still probably smile that she became one of the ladies who made to the final.

Well, when it comes to this kind of competition, beauty is paramount. By beauty, a number of aspects are to be considered. There is the outside beauty that pertains to elegance, body outlook, and the outfit chosen for the occasion as well as the uniqueness when it comes to conveying a message or self-expression. One's actions in terms of their achievements like, education and community service are put on a scale and when they prove worth enough, a candidate is kept for consideration. The chosen judges for this competition made their analyses.

In most cases, women empowerment is among one of the programs established by beauty pageants. This is probably the case as some people claim that beauty pageants objectify women and as such, the women empowerment program is born to give people the real truth about it and to reassure women that that is just critic's thoughts.

Confidence is among the virtues that beauty pageant instills among the ladies. A confident woman has the power to make real change, starting from her local community with the potential to reach a global audience.

The intelligence of a lady chosen as the Miss Universe is undoubtedly a very high criteria. Why so? This is because given the fact that after her crowning, she becomes very influential, so there is a need to choose a lady with a sound mind and perspective in life. Her words are meant to convince and motivate others for a better life in this world.

A crowned Miss Universe must by all odds be braced and committed to offer services to her community and the society at large.
