"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," Harnaaz replied to the question.
Earlier, in the beauty contest, when Harnaaz was in the top 5, she was asked, "Many people think climate change is a hoax, what would you do to convince them otherwise?"
The moment Harnaaz Sandhu became Miss Universe 2021:
Harnaaz impressed all with her answer as she said, "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 our each action could save or kill nature. Prevent and protect is better than repent and repair and this is what I am trying to convince you guys today."
Harnaaz is the third Indian woman to win the Miss Universe pageant.
