MANILA -- Catriona Gray is staying productive at home amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
On Instagram, the Miss Universe 2018 titleholder revealed that she is making the most of her time by working on her book.
"Using my time to write my #ConqueringYourUniverseBook! So excited for you all to gain a deeper insight to my journey thus far!" she said.
Titled "Conquering Your Universe," Gray's writing project was first announced in December 2019 as the beauty queen signed a contract with ABS-CBN Books.
In a previous interview, Gray described her book as "a collection of lessons that I've learned in the past couple of years that I feel really allowed me to achieve what I did."
She added that "it's not about just pageantry" as the contents of her book "can be applicable to anyone from whatever walk of life."
On Thursday, Gray took to Instagram to share her message of gratitude to "every other person who doesn't have the opportunity to stay at home."
"Knowing that they are out there, working tirelessly, being away from their families, gusto ko lang sabihin maraming, maraming salamat po sa lahat ng servicemen at servicewomen natin. To all the medical staff, doctors, nurses, lab technicians, medical admin staff, and health workers," she said.
Gray went on: "To all the cashiers, supermarket staff, truck drivers, and those who work in getting foods and goods to the rest of the population, to the security guards, policemen and women, and military personnel -- thank you. Thank you for your service in this time of need."
