It was back on March 18, 2018 when Catriona Gray won the Miss Universe Philippines 2018 crown during the annual Binibining Pilipinas pageant. The now 2018 Miss Universe reminisced on how rejoining the pageant paved the way to  her eventually winning the prestigious Miss Universe title.

She said, “Joining @bbpilipinasofficial despite my fears, proving all those people who said I couldn’t, wrong. I realised that night that those doors that closed on me in the years prior were not denying me but redirecting to something even better than I could ever have dreamed of. ? Sometimes the Universe has bigger things in store for you. You just need to stay true to yourself, surround yourself with people who believe in you, put the work in and have faith.”
