The 63rd annual Miss Universe Pageant gracefully crowned Paulina Vega 2015 Miss Universe. The Doral Miami crowed roared when her name was announced, as she embraced her first runner up Miss USA (Nia Sanchez). Leading not too far behind was second runner up Ukraine (Diana Harkusha), third runner up Netherlands (Yasmin Verheijen), and fourth runner up, Jamaica (Kaci Fennell).
The 22-year-old was born in Barranquilla, and is 5’9″, and speaks both Spanish and English fluently. When chosen for the Top 15, Vega was elated: “It will be a dream come true to represent the woman of today. A woman that not only cares about being beautiful and being glamorous, but also cares about being a professional, intelligent, hard-working person,” she said.
Well, her dreams have come true, and now’s her time to prove that she can hold the title of Miss Universe with the same dignity and poise she did as Miss Colombia.
