Asked what specific Filipino trait she put to good use during the Miss Universe pageant, Miriam recounts her answer to the question,
"If you could be an animal, what would you be?" during the preliminaries.
Miriam had replied, "I would be a horse. Have you ever seen a horse run?
The grace, the coordination of its limbs and muscles rippling as it moves."
