Reigning Miss Universe Catriona Gray is now spreading her crown-winning Pinoy positivity to drivers on the road.
The 4th Filipina Miss Universe titleholder, who won in 2018 on a platform of her positive outlook on life despite challenges, is marking another milestone as the first Filipino celebrity voice of Google’s navigation app, Waze. Gray joins international celebrity comedians, talk-show hosts, actors, and athletes as Waze Voices.
Catriona Gray’s voice can be heard providing road navigation instructions to motorists using the app, delivered with her signature energizing tips for a happy journey.
Gray is on Waze saying, “Time to park the car and do the lava walk,” a quirky reference to her iconic pageant walk at the Miss Universe tilt in Thailand.
“In my experience, U-turns are best made slowly” is another Catriona Gray gem on Waze that refers to her signature slow-mo turn which captured the world’s attention.
“Being the newest voice on Waze enables me to share positivity to Filipinos who are on the road—going to school, work or wherever they need to be. I want to keep them inspired and help them find their way so that we can all be happy and remain optimistic, despite many challenges such as the traffic,” Gray said in a statement presenting her as the newest voice guide on the navigation tool.
Waze PH country manager Sarah Rodriguez said that Gray’s inclusion as one of the voices for the app would make driving a more inspiring activity. “Waze has always been dedicated to give its users the best driving experience possible. Now, people can make their drives even more enjoyable by letting our Miss Universe inspire them while they’re on the road,” Rodriguez shared.
Catriona Gray’s inclusion among the voice guides for motorists using Waze was presented to media on September 16. The Catriona Gray voice app on Waze was made in partnership with BDO Unibank where the beauty queen is an endorser.
Catriona Gray and her slow-mo turn has also been featured in an ad campaign by Filipino food chain, Jollibee.
