Andrea Meza final question and answer

During the final round, Miss Mexico was asked to address the topic of changing beauty standards, to which she answered

“We live in a society that is more and more advanced and as we have advanced as a society, we have advanced stereotypes. Nowadays, beauty is not only the way we look. For me, beauty radiated not only in our spirits but in our hearts and the way we conduct ourselves. Never permit someone to tell you that you are not valuable.”

When asked how she would deal with a COVID-19 pandemic, she also said:

“I believe there is not a perfect way to handle this hard situation such as COVID-19. However, I believe that what I would have done, was create the lockdown even before everything was that big because we lost so many lives and we cannot afford that. We have to take care of our people. That’s why I would have taken care of them since the beginning.”
