On her Instagram post, she stated,” With all that has been going on in the world ‘black lives matter, ‘Asians are human’ you would think this would bring us together. Instead, it looks like some people are still stuck in their ignorant and racist ideologies,” She also added, “I’m really disappointed with some Pageant fans from certain countries. Your hate takes away the fun and enjoyment from this once-in-a-lifetime experience,”

She even stated that you don’t have to support every contestant, but you don’t need to bring down others. She said that spreading LOVE is what’s important.

You don’t need to dim someone’s light in order for you to shine – Nova Stevens

After the post got noticed, she posted a follow-up Instagram post full of positive remarks this time. She stated that she loves Filipinos and doesn’t think that Filipinos are racist. She wants to shed light on toxicity from fans around the world.

“ In every group of people; whether black, white, green, yellow, red, purple, there are always a few bad apples. I know for a fact there is more good than evil in this world; Which is why it’s important to shed light on the darkness so that our collective light can illuminate the world,” she stated.

Nova Stevens even showed off her Filipino-made couture gown by  Michael Cinco. She showed that at the end of the day, she wants to spread love. She even stated, “I’m sharing this as a teaching moment so that we can make Pageants fun and enjoyable for all. All the girls competing have worked hard for this moment and deserve to have the best experience. Cheer for your girls with love and respect for the other delegates because they too are deserving of the ‘Miss Universe’ crown. Spread love not to hate❤.”

These differences, like our skin color, shouldn’t separate us. Our differences should be embraced. We can all root for people without stepping down on others. We are all different, but at the end of the day, we are all human beings.
