After a number of negative issues came out after the Miss Universe 2015 hullabaloo, Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez finally acknowledged her fate as a first-runner up and greeted Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach for her win as Miss Universe 2015. In an Instagram post, Ariadna shared her thoughts and congratulatory message for Pia.

LOOK:

After the storm comes the calm. I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength. Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world. Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this. I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes… Today because of that COLOMBIA and the LATIN COMMUNITY are being talked about in every corner of the world. I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe ??. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible. Life continues and in the future we will find out why things happen the way they happen. Thank you all for your LOVE SUPPORT and KINDNESS. ❤️
