Meza took the crown from South Africas Zozibini Tunzi, whose reign was extended by a few months after the 2020 pageant was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
A software engineer by profession, Meza has been advocating against gender violence.
During the final question and answer round, the beauty queen was asked how she would have handled the Covid-19 situation in her home country if she was the leader.
I believe theres not a perfect way to handle this harsh situation such as Covid-19.
However, I believe that what I would have done was to create the lockdown, even before everything was that big because we lost so many lives, Meza replied to the panel of judges.
Final questions are here! The first to go is Mexico. #MISSUNIVERSE
