What you just witnessed is the beauty of pure, unbridled confidence. ¬†Ol’ girl needed a translator to even understand the question, but when it came time to answer she thought to herself “I got this.” Listen to her conviction at 0:30 on “I think that WE should have a straight way to go.” She said that like she was Barack Obama talking about the path toward progress.

Anyway, no matter how ridiculous her answer sounded, it’s no where near as bad as Lauren Caitlin Upton (aka Miss Teen USA South Carolina 2007), answering this pageant question in her native tongue:
