Ariadna Gutierrez, better known as Miss Colombia 2015 during the Miss Universe pageant, has finally broken her silence after the series of drama that followed the pageant’s conclusion.

With a heartwarming message shared along with a photo on Instagram, Ariadna took a moment to welcome in what she called the calm after the storm, thanking the fans who supported her as Miss Colombia 2015 and congratulating Miss Philippines for winning the title.

“After the storm comes the calm,” the beauty queen wrote. “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.”

Miss Colombia 2015 shared that “Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this,” before saying that she believed it was her destiny to bring happiness to her country as Miss Universe, even if it was only for a few minutes.

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. ❤️

Ariadna then uses the rest of her post to congratulate Pia Wurtzbach, the Miss Universe representative from the Philippines, on winning the crown. ” I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe,” she said, “The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible.”

The post ends on a positive note as the beauty queen once again thanks all of her fans and supporters by saying “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.”

Despite the humiliating gaffe that occurred when Ariadna Gutierrez was mistakenly crowned as Miss Universe 2015 before having the honor taken away and given to the rightful winner, Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Colombia 2015 seems to be taking things in stride and hopefully will be able to move past the embarrassing incident soon enough.
