25 December 2015 / 1 year 5 months ago

Despite the physical crown and pageant title, Miss Colombia will always have that minute when she was Miss Universe.

Steve Harvey's awkward reveal of the wrong winner blew up all over the Internet but Ariadna Gutierrez is not focusing on the negative.

According to Elite Daily, the 21-year-old posted a collage of the wonderful moments she had wearing the Miss Universe crown and sash.

She also posted another picture to Instagram where she thanked fans for sticking with her during this awkward time.

She wrote: 

"After the storm comes the calm. I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength. Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world. Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this. I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes... Today because of that COLOMBIA and the LATIN COMMUNITY are being talked about in every corner of the world. I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible. Life continues and in the future we will find out why things happen the way they happen. Thank you all for your LOVE SUPPORT and KINDNESS. ❤"
