The Philippines’ pride, Angelia Gabrena Ong was crowned Miss Earth 2015. The coronation night was held in Vienna, Austria.
This joyful moment happens to be Philippines’ second time in a row to win in the said competition.
In 2008, Karla Henry won the title followed by Jamie Herrell in 2014.
The 25-year-old, beauty and brains, Angelia outshined 85 other candidates for the crown.
She was originally from Iloilo but moved to Manila in 2012.
The runners up were: Australia’s Dayana Grageda (Miss Earth Air); USA’s Britanny Ann Payne (Miss Earth Water ) and Brazil’s Thiessa Sickert (Miss Earth Fire)
She also posted a photo on her Facebook account with the following caption:
This is for the PHILIPPINES! We won again! The crown is back to our land.
When Angelia was asked (during the question and answer portion) to come up with a slogan for the next 15 years, she said: “We will, because we can.”
She explained: “I want to let everybody know that all things are possible and all things are feasible if we work together. We will, because we can.”
Well said, Angelia! Congratulations, everyone!
Shine girl, shine!
