It was gathered that Nguyen who is a marketing student had impressed the judges by answering a particular question intelligently.
Being a millennial, what is the most pressing issue of your generation?”
She replied: “The most pressure for our generation, my generation, is our ignorance. We have so much technology, and we just use it for social media and we just care for ourselves.
“We should spend our time to think and feel what’s happening with the Earth right now and when small actions multiplied by million people can transform the world.”
Nigeria was represented in the competition by Maristella Okpala. Aside from being a beauty queen, the you lady is also a dental technologist.
