She took a stand for young women everywhere, posting on her instagram, "I am a very strong woman, but sometimes my strength isn't enough. Your staff told me that I had to lose weight for the finals because I have too much fat on me and also too big shoulders. They told me to lose weight and you would like me more. I decided to leave." Before adding that she "truly hopes that the organization opens their eyes because the year is 2016 and if you are gonna hold an international pageant, you have to see the international beauty."
