"You are always asked about world peace. How would you bring about world peace," Lemon asked.

"By telling people that communication is the best way to achieve world peace. I think the reason why there is war is because there is conflict, and that is because there is miscommunication," she confidently answered.

Lemon also asked Wurtzbach about her advocacy to raise HIV awareness.

"In the Philippines, it's a growing epidemic. It is growing because of unprotected sexual contact and rampant drug use. Also I am learning more about it now on an international level now that I am Miss Universe," Wurtzbach said.

She added that while she is not an expert on the matter, she is learning, and the more she learns about it, the more she realizes the importance of advocating the issue.

She also wants to address an issue hounding her natural disaster-prone country — the implementation and dissemination of relief operations in places commonly hit by natural disasters.

Aside from HIV awareness and relief operations, she is also a proponent of combating cyberbullying.

Wurtzbach was named Miss Universe last December 21 (PHT).
