NAKABALIK na sa bansa si Catriona Gray mula nang ipasa ang korona sa katatapos pa lamang na Miss Universe 2019 na ginanap sa Amerika. Abala ngayon ang beauty queen para sa promotion ng libro na kanyang isinulat sa pamamahala ng ABS-CBN Publishing. “The title is Conquering Your Universe. It’s a collection of lessons that I learned in the past couple of years. That I feel really allowed me to achieve what I did, things that I’ve learned from a personal perspective, things that I learned in regards to dealing or learning from others, and also about giving back,” pagbabahagi ni Catriona.
Ang gusto lamang umano ng Miss Universe 2018 ay maka-relate ang mga mambabasa kaya hindi lamang tungkol sa pagsali sa mga beauty contest ang kanyang isinulat. “It’s not just about pageantry. These lessons can be applicable to anyone from whatever walk of life that they may be in. I just wanted to do something that would be a positive impact, or contribute to the community,” paliwanag ng dalaga.
Bata pa lamang ay hilig na ni Catriona ang pagbabasa at pagsusulat tungkol sa kanyang mga nararamdaman. “I’ve really been a writer ever since in a sense that I am able to process what I’m feeling by putting it on paper. I always enjoy reading growing up. I was brought up with books in a way. And so I wanted to create something that I put a lot of heart into,” paglalahad niya.
Bukod sa bagong libro ay kailangan ding pakaabangan ng mga tagahanga ang musika o single na gagawin ng beauty queen. Nais ding ipagpatuloy ni Catriona ang pagiging isang modelo. May bulung-bulungan na magiging bahagi raw ang dalaga ng pinakabagong season ng Asia’s Next Top Model. “There’s rumors as far as I know, but they will be definitely some international trips even international advocacy work that I want to pursue,” pagtatapos ng Miss Universe 2018.
