Miss Mexico Andrea Meza Wins Miss Universe 2020

A year after the annual competition went on a hiatus due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Meza was crowned Miss Universe 2020 on Sunday evening.

Meza, 26, beat out 73 other women representing their countries and territories, including runner-up Miss Brazil Julia Gama and second runner-up Miss Peru Janick Maceta Del Castillo.

Meza — who has a degree in software engineering, according to her contestant biography — was presented the crown by her successor, Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

During her final statement, Meza was given the topic of changing beauty standards and offered an inspiring answer.

"We live in a society that more and more is more than advanced, and as we advance as a society, we've also advanced with stereotypes," she said. "Nowadays beauty isn't only the way we look. For me, beauty radiates not only in our spirit, but in our hearts and the way that we conduct ourselves. Never permit someone to tell you that you're not valuable."

Earlier in the night, Meza was also asked how she would have handled the COVID pandemic if she was the leader of her country and said she would have started a lockdown earlier.

"I believe there is not a perfect way to handle this hard situation such as COVID-19," she said. "However, I believe what I would have done is create the lockdown even before everything was that big because we lost so many lives and we cannot afford that. We have to take care of our people. That's why I would have taken care of them since the beginning."
