Make way for the new *kween*! Andrea Meza has been crowned Miss Universe 2020. The 26-year-old beauty queen from Mexico competed against 73 other candidates, including our very own Miss Universe Philippines, Rabiya Mateo.
ICYMI, Rabiya made it to the Top 21 and we're absolutely proud of her. She did so well!
And former Pinay beauty queens definitely agree. They shared the most heartfelt "Congratulations" and "Thank you" posts for Rabiya all over social media and we can't help but gush over the overwhelming support!
