From top 18 to 10 to 5 and finally to winning... how were the thoughts moving?

Don't know if anyone noticed, but every time they were announcing the winners, my name was the last to be announced. So it used to be a complete roller coaster ride for me. Every time I thot ab gai ab gai.. but God saved me!

While asking about her dream of winning the crown she said:
