22-year-old beauty queen Paulina Vega glided past 87 contestants from other countries around the world to be crowned the beautiful woman in the universe. While the competition took place in 2015, it awarded the 2014 winner.
Coming in second place was Miss USA Nia Sanchez followed by Miss Ukraine Diana Harkusha.
Paulina is a business administration student who had never competed in pageants before the contests leading up to Miss Universe. She plans on getting back to her studies and this will be her final pageant, according to the Associated Press.
“It will be a dream come true to represent the woman of today,” Paulina said earlier this week. “A woman that not only care about being beautiful and being glamorous, but also cares about being a professional, intelligent, hard-working person.”
