(14 May 2019) MISS USA AND MISS UNIVERSE TALK PAGEANT MISCONCEPTIONS AND INCLUSIVITYFormer Miss USA Sarah Rose Summers and Miss Universe Catriona Gray are opening up about pageant misconceptions. They two women are currently living together in New York City for the one-year reign of their titles.Summers says the best way to change a person's mind about pageants is to have an actual conversation with them. "Whether that's talking about a cause or my education. I graduated with two degrees in four years while working two jobs and people always are intrigued by that and asking follow-up questions and just having that conversation. But if you don't have the ability to actually chat with some of those naysayers, I love just pouring on social media, which can be such a dark place, of everything that this opportunity gives us," Summers explained. Gray, who won the title of Miss Universe in December, only recently made the move to New York from her home country of the Philippines."It's like just imploring people to look beyond the surface because I feel like a lot of that judgement is because of the perception that, 'Oh it's a pretty girl on a stage, in a pretty dress waving and speaking for 30 seconds.' That's it. But really if you look into each of us as individuals, we all have stories, we all have journeys and we all have passions that we pursue. And yeah, I think if people were only to look a little bit deeper," Gray said. Summers, who hails from Nebraska, competed against Gray at the Miss Universe pageant in Bangkok, Thailand. Another contestant, 27-year-old Angela Ponce from Spain became the first transgender woman to participation in the international competition. ""I feel honored to be Miss USA within the Miss Universe organization and I am sure Cat to speak to that even more so, where the Miss Universe organization stands on this platform of inclusivity and empowering women in whatever their passions may be. And Miss Spain is one example of that, she was a woman who was empowered by standing on stage and sharing her story at Miss Universe," Summers said. "The whole panel was a panel of established female judges who are not only beauty queens but philanthropists, business owners and professionals. So, seeing it through that lens, too - we are women empowering women."added Gray. Summers recently handed her crown over to her sucessor, Cheslie Kryst from North Carolina.Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/10201102858...
