But she failed to make it to top five where candidates were asked a question to determine the top three.

"In some places, women get paid 75 per cent of what men earn for doing the same job, working the same hours, and I do not believe that is right", said Nel-Peters, who recently earned a business management degree. Harvey announced the victor as Miss Colombia, but Miss Philippines was the one who earned the crown. "Miss Jamaica, u are truly a miss universe".

Thought that didn't deter from Miss Universe's crowning moment! "'I think we should have equal work for equal pay for women all over the world", she said. During the pageant, she was asked, "What quality in yourself are you most proud of and how will you apply that quality to your time as Miss Universe?"

Bennett, the 21-year-old from the central Jamaica parish of Clarendon, placed second runner-up among 92 contestants from across the globe.

"As Miss Universe, you have to be confident in who you are as an individual".

Congratulations are in order for Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, who was just crowned the new Miss Universe, reports the Daily Mail.

Miss Colombia Laura Gonzalez finished as first-runner up while Miss Jamaica Davina Bennett was named second-runner up.

Congrats to Bennett for slaying in this Miss Universe competition, and for showing natural-haired women an Afro is just as handsome as any blowout in the book. Also in the Top 5 were Miss Venezuela Keysi Sayago and Miss Thailand Maria Poonlertlarp. Rounding out the Top 16 were China's Roxana Qiu, Croatia's Shanaelle Petty, Ghana's Ruth Quashie, Great Britain's Anna Burdzy, Ireland's Cailín Toíbín and Sri Lanka's Christina Peiris.

"This one is for every single girl and boy that has a dream!" the model and beauty queen wrote on Instagram after her win. This did very little, as more than half of undergraduate students take up to 6 years to graduate, leading us to age 24, and for a Ph.D or master's, the average graduating age is 33 (What is The Average Age of A Graduate Student, 2016).
