1. She’s currently taking up a degree in Dental Surgery
Don’t you think Iris’s smile is simply captivating? This lady admitted that she decided to take up dentistry because when she was young, she didn’t have good teeth and her dentist inspired her a lot. Now she wants to do the same for the kids out there.
Expect that she’ll be spreading some SMILE in the days to come!
2. She’s the second woman from France to bring home the crown
France has not won the Miss Universe title since Christiane Martel was crowned in 1953. And this is the third time that France was included in the Top 5 in the pageant competition. Another additional trivia: She’s the first European woman who has officially won the pageant since 1990!
This calls for a celebration!
3. She joined the sports competition series Ninja Warriors France
As a sports enthusiast, Iris joined the Ninja Warriors competition in her country but got booted out on the first round when she slipped and fell. She considers it as one of the most embarrassing moments of her life.
Okay lang iyan, te! Nakuha mo naman ang korona sa Miss U.

Kaya naman pala hindi maganda ngipin mo noong bata, ate girl!

This young lady loves to cook and considers it as one of her talents.
Would you be so kind as to cook for us some bouillabaisse?

Ikaw na, ate!
