Paulina Vega is the first Colombian beauty queen to don the Miss Universe crown in 56 years, and she said she hopes to help her home country during her reign.

The Barranquilla-born business student stopped by HuffPost Live on Friday to chat about her win and more. After the segment, Vega, 22, spoke to The Huffington Post about her desire to visit Colombia during her year as Miss Universe and what causes she’d like to help out with there.

The newly crowned Miss Universe is only the second beauty queen from the South American country to win the title, the first being Luz Marina Zuluaga in 1958. Colombian beauty queens, however, have been chosen as first runners-up to the title, as was the case in 1992, 1993, 1994 and 2008.
