In the final round of questioning, Harnaaz said that the advice she would love to give young women is to believe in themselves. She 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.”
In the earlier question-answer round, she was asked to convince people who believe that Climate change is a hoax otherwise. Answering the question, she expressed that one must act rather than repent and repair. The points of each round were tallied and votes were counted in the end. After this, Harnaaz Sandhu was crowned Miss Universe 2021.
Congratulations to Miss Universe 2021!
