Walang isyu kay Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray na mayroon siyang tiger stripes o stretch marks sa katawan dahil palatandaan ito na isa siyang babae.

Sa isang panayam ng magazine show na Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho nitong Linggo, sinabi ni Catriona na nais niyang iparating sa kababaihan na okay lang na magkaroon ng stretch marks.
“Which should be OK, shouldn’t it? I mean, every woman has flaws or they’re not really flaws, but they just make us natural, it’s what we have as woman,” ani Cat.
Wala rin aniyang balak ang Miss Universe na itago ang mga stretch marks niya lalo’t natural lang na magkaroon nito ang sinuman.
“And I think it’s refreshing for people to see that, for young girls to look up and see, ‘Oh! She has tiger stripes too,’ you know. ‘Why should I feel like I need to hide them? Why do I not feel like I’m confident in them? I should be.’ And that’s the kind of dialogue I wanna start,” paliwanag ni Cat.
Hindi naman makapaniwala ang award-winning broadcast journalist na si Jessica Soho, na nag-interview kay Catriona, na may “flaws” din ang beauty queen.
“Yeah. I mean, who doesn’t have… right? It’s a part of being a woman. I’m a regular person just like anyone else,” sabi ni Cat.
Ibinahagi rin ng Filipino-Australian beauty queen ang pagkakaroon niya ng scoliosis, na aniya’y hindi naging hadlang sa pag-abot niya sa kanyang mga pangarap.
“I think that was drawn out of proportion. Yes, I have scoliosis, but it has never stopped me. I feel like it was blown out of proportion a little bit. Yes, I have scoliosis, yes it causes me discomfort, but that’s all,” ani Cat.
Dagdag pa niya: “It has never made me cry, it has never put me in excruciating pain and I’ve never seen it as a barrier to what I wanna pursue and what I want to do…. so it’s just a part that makes me unique. It’s something that I’ve had or diagnosed with at 12 years old and it only causes me mild discomfort, that’s all.”
Inilarawan din ni Jessica si Cat bilang sexy at nerdy, na aniya’y isang “deadly combination”.
“I think they call me nerdy because I do like all my presentations on Powerpoint, I like to write out my notes, I’m a note taker, that’s just because growing up I was very academic, I was very studious and I read a lot,” sagot ni Cat.
Inamin ng ikaapat na Miss Universe ng Pilipinas na isa siyang certified foodie at naging black-belter sa edad na 12.
Bagamat hindi siya na-bully noong bata, nakatulong ang martial arts sa pagbuo sa kanyang kumpiyansa sa sarili, ayon kay Catriona.
“I mean, that’s not that point of martial arts, it’s more about being able to defend yourself and having that confidence in your character that if the situation were to ever arise, that you could defend yourself, and that’s all I’ve seen, I’ve never seen it as a like ‘Don’t mess with me.’ But yeah, it’s just something that really build up my confidence as a kid. I never experienced bullying and I feel like that was the big part of that,” paliwanag pa niya.
