A superstar will always be a superstar. Since her win as Miss Universe 2015, her career has been a whirlwind of endorsements, movies, TV shows and international appearances. And it seems like she’s not stopping anytime soon as she gets ready for grander things in the near future. She is excited, and so are we as she shares her current state of mind and the future she is building for herself and her career. The glitter has settled on stage, the velvet curtains closed and the lights turned down. The show is done for the night, but our forever Miss Universe is not yet done with the show as she becomes the cover girl for MEGA’s September 2018 issue.
