"Miss Universe Captivates New York" Jewish Telegraphic Agency (July 21, 1976)

  • I'm no politician. I think my being Miss Universe will show people that Israel has another side, not only war.
  • I am so surprised by New York City. I thought New York must be ugly and unpleasant, you know, I saw all those movies about New York….But New York is beautiful and the people here are really nice.
  • All I want is to continue to study….I want to learn about everything, about people, about life.
  • As Miss Universe I can reach people who are usually not interested in politics and are not familiar with the problems of the Mideast. In that way I can make a modest contribution to peace. And another thing: as Miss Universe I can show the world that life in Israel is not all war.
