MANILA - Miss Earth proclaimed its new queens this year in a grand event held at the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman Theater in Quezon City on Saturday night.
During the question and answer portion, Miss Philippines Jamie Herell was asked by judge Olivier Ochanine of the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra a question about global warming.
“If you win tonight’s crown, what will you do to help slow down or reverse the effects of global warming?” he asked.
Herell answered: “Global warming has been known for being a very long, overdue issue. That is why if I am crowned tonight, I will use my title to inspire others to help our environment and we will start with the kids because the kids are the people of tomorrow. If we teach them, they will also help the community. That’s what I will do if I’m crowned Miss Earth tonight.”
Herrell was crowned Miss Earth 2014 besting the other contestants from all over the world.
Anastasia Trusova of Russia was named Miss Earth Fire, Maira Alexandra Rodriguez of Venezuela was named Miss Earth Water and Andrea Neu of USA was named Miss Earth Air.
