Miss Universe 2023 winning question
The final question of Miss Universe 2023 was “If you could live one year in another woman’s shoes who would you choose and why?”. While Miss Australia honored her mother by saying that she would like to step into her mother’s shoe, Miss Thailand named Malala Yousafzai as her answer. She said her struggle and achievements highly inspire her. However, Miss Nicaragua’s answer was the most different and unexpected.
