Bagong Henerasyon party-list Rep. Bernadette Herrera-Dy is proud that Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray is an advocate for children’s rights.

In a statement Monday, Herrera-Dy hailed Gray as a “woman of substance.”

“Nadagdagan tayo ng matibay, maganda, at maimpluwensiyang kapanalig na magsusulong ng mga karapatan at kapakanan ng mga kabataan, ng bagong henerasyon,” she said.

Herrera-Dy, who chairs the House committee on women and gender equality, said Gray’s victory is a proud moment for Filipinos.

The 24-year-old Gray was crowned Miss Universe during the pageant held in Thailand.

She is the country’s fourth Miss Universe title holder, after Gloria Diaz, Margie Moran and Pia Wurtzbach.
