Los Angeles: Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez, who was wrongly crowned the 2015 Miss Universe for just a couple of minutes, says the incident was written in her destiny.
Gutierrez shared a touching message on Instagram on Tuesday in which she congratulated Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach for winning the Miss Universe title, reports aceshowbiz.com.
"After the storm comes the calm," Gutierrez, 21, wrote alongside a photograph of her putting her hands to create a heart symbol.
"I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength. Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world. Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this,” she added.
Later on, Gutierrez addressed the wrong announcement at the beauty pageant.
"I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes... Today because of that COLOMBIA and the LATIN COMMUNITY are being talked about in every corner of the world," she continued.
The 21-year-old beauty has apparently been able to let go of the flub and congratulated the real winner Pia from Philippines.
She said: "I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible. Life continues and in the future we will find out why things happen the way they happen. Thank you all for your LOVE SUPPORT and KINDNESS."
