Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters born 28 June 1995 is a South African model and beauty queen who was crowned Miss Universe 2017. She previously was crowned Miss South Africa 2017, and is the second Miss Universe winner from South Africa, following Miss Universe 1978 Margaret Gardiner.
In the final round, Steve Harvey asked Nel-Peters “What quality in yourself are you most proud of and how will you apply that quality to your time as Miss Universe?” , she said:
As Miss Universe, you have to be confident in who you are as an individual. And Miss Universe is a woman that has overcome many fears and by that, she is able to help other women to overcome their fears. She is a woman that nothing is ever too much to ask for and I think that is exactly who I am.
