Goals: The light at the end of tunnel is a job with Victoria's secret.

Q&A Answer: When asked how she would react if a modeling agency urged her to lose weight, Aryis responded: ""I feel really comfortable in the way I feel and I think that's really important. If someone told me I was overweight, then I would completely ignore it. As long as I'm feeling good within myself then that's all that matters."

Personal Quote: "I am an honest, down to earth person. I take everything at face value and try not to judge. From the beginning of this Miss Universe journey I have continued to be true to myself."
