Omedeto to Hiroko Mima, Miss Japan 2008 for making it into the 2008 Miss Universe Final 15. She did a great job representing her country. She should serve as an inspiration to women here to be confident, get a degree, and to work to make their dreams become reality.

Oh yeah, a big shout out to Miss USA, Crystle Stewart of Texas and to Miss Denmark for rockin’ the ‘fro!
