During her acceptance speech, Mary made sure to give glory to God after pointing out what she felt she was.

& # 39; Although I am a leader, a queen, a living legend … Although I am all these things, I am also a servant and I am here to serve, & # 39; she began, according to ET.

& # 39; Being a servant is not always glamorous or popular, but it is the job and the assignment I have received. Because to become authority, I had to come under authority. It is because when the glory is laid on me, I give it back to God. & # 39;
