The teenager on the stage was competing with several other girls for the crown. However, answer to 'essence of a woman' question met the expectations of the judges that made her Miss Universe 1994. What she said was, "Being a woman by itself is a gift of God which all of us must appreciate. The origin of a child is a mother, and is a woman. A woman is the one who shares the love and shows a man what sharing, caring, and loving is all about. That is the essence of a woman."
