The entire world is under tough times since the outbreak of the pandemic Covid-19 across the globe. The governments had announced a complete lockdown and urged everyone to practice social distancing until the situation gets normal again. The beauty queens have used this time to work on themselves or learn something new. The divas are also using their social media account to voice out and help the local textiles, front liners, and people of the community. The divas are also keeping their fans informed about the situations and activities they’ve been up to.

Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray is all in support for the local textiles amid the covid19. She has been continuously working and vocalizing her platform and voice to support the local textiles in the Philippines. In her recent social media post, Catriona can be seen wearing face masks made from indigenous fabrics such as lNABEL as her way of supporting local weavers.

The diva explained, “I've been constantly thinking of our local weavers... and wanted to share these locally made and woven face masks by locally owned Filipino brands.” The video which she uploaded on her social media account included the diva doing her own makeup and using the facemasks made by the local textiles of the Philippines to enhance the look since it’s compulsory to wear a mask these days. She created three different looks for three different masks from three different brands.

Catriona was popularized for coming up with patriotic outfits and accessories during her Miss Universe stint, and few months back was appointed as an arts ambassador of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.

Catriona is not only vocalizing for the local textiles but also helping the front liners in whatever way she can.

The diva also shares her pictures from all the activities and studies she has been up to during the quarantine and encourages everyone to stay strong, positive, and safe. She has shared that she has been using her time at home by taking an online course on improving memory and comprehension for faster learning. She mentioned that she is also learning and reading Tagalog online to champion the culture of her home country. She also stated that she has been reading a lot of books and has just finished ‘Educated’ by Tara Westover.
