Leila Lopes (Miss Angola), a business student from the town of Benguela, was crowned Miss Universe at Yesterday's 60th annual pageant in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The 25-year-old vowed to help fight AIDS and poverty.
The pageant hosted 89 women – who must be single and between the ages of 18 and 27 – competed for the title. The first runner-up was Olesia Stefanko of Ukraine; second runner-up, Miss Brazil Priscila Machado. The others in the Top 5 were Miss Philippines and Miss China. 

When asked what she might change about herself, Lopes replied: "Thank God I'm very satisfied with the way God created me and I wouldn't change a thing," reports Time.com. "I consider myself a woman endowed with inner beauty. I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family and I intend to follow these for the rest of my life."

Way yo go Miss Angola!!
