In Sao Paolo, Brazil, Miss Angola Leila Lopes brings honor to her country as she was crowned Miss Universe, becoming the first ever Angolan Miss Universe.

The first runner-up was 23-year-old Olesia Stefanko of Ukraine, the second runner-up was Priscila Machado of Brazil, third runner-up was Shamcey Supsup of Philippines and fourth was awarded to Miss China.

Leila Luliana da Costa Vieira Lopes was born in Benguela, Angola in February 1986. She studied business management in Great Britain, and in 2010, won Miss Angola UK. She took part against 21 other contestants in Angola’s national beauty pageant last December.

In the  Q&A portion of Miss Universe, the 25-year old was asked about what physical trait she would change if she could.

“Thank God I’m very satisfied with the way God created me and I wouldn’t change a thing,” she replied. “I consider myself a woman endowed with inner beauty. I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family and I intend to follow these for the rest of my life.”

Congratulations to the winner of the 2011 Miss Universe pageant.

Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!

Mabuhay!
