She won the Miss Universe title for the Philippines but spent much of her childhood in Australia. And now Catriona Gray is set to continue her global trek as she becomes an American resident.

The 25-year-old beauty queen has now moved to the USA as part of her Miss Universe win, which will see her reside in New York to work alongside the organisation.

And Gray has been giving her followers a glimpse into her new life, as she explored NYC with fellow pageant winners Miss USA Sarah Rose Summers and Miss Teen USA Hailey Colborn. The three will live together as part of the Miss Universe Organisation, which handles all three pageants.

After a day of exploring, the three women sat down to answer some fan questions on Facebook live, where they gave an insight into their new lives and advice to anyone wanting to get into pageantry.

Calling her fellow beauty queens her “sisters”, Gray said: “looking forward to exploring more of NYC with these beautiful girls”.

Gray will reside in New York throughout her year-long Miss Universe reign, where she will work towards her goals and the wider aims of the organisation. When she was crowned winner in December, she spoke of her plans to become an ambassador for HIV/AIDS awareness, after losing a close friend to the disease.
