The DOT secretary said not only Gray’s win, she also showed the universe her strength as a woman and the beauty of the Philippines in all her video clips that helped promote the country’s culture and famous tourist attractions.

One popular series of video clips filmed before the staging of the Ms. Universe 2018 pageant in Thailand, is the “My Motherland” videos showing and ultimately promoting unique tourist attractions of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

For Luzon’s Rizal Park, Fort Santiago, churches in Intramuros and the world-renowned Palawan. She also showed the resilience of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) survivors in Tacloban City and Mindanao’s multi-faceted South Cotabato. 
The beauty queen from Oas, Bicol also showed the country’s artistic side through her national costume. 

“Throughout the Miss Universe competition, Miss Gray evoked the Filipino people’s essential attributes of friendliness, cheerfulness, hospitality and kindness when she was around the representatives of different nations,” read a DOT statement.
