Harnaaz Sandhu crowned Miss Universe 2021:
Harnaaz Sandhu is the new Miss Universe 2021! The 21-year-old from Punjab, representing India at the 70th Miss Universe 2021, held in Eilat, Israel, brought home the crown, 21 years after Lara Dutta won the title in 2000. She edged out contestants Paraguay and South Africa to claim the crown. Sandhu was presented the crown by Andrea Meza, former Miss Universe 2020 from Mexico at the event which was live-streamed globally.
After wooing the judges in the preliminary competition, Harnaaz oozed confidence and grace as she took over the runway for the swimsuit round. Dressed in a stunning maroon cap-sleeved swimsuit, Harnaaz impressed all and sealed her spot in the top 10.
As part of the top three round, the contestants were asked, “What advice would you give to young women watching on how to deal with the pressures they face today”
To this, Harnaaz said, “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 impressed all when 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.”
