Kathleen Paton is another step closer to the Miss Eco International 2022 crown.
The Filipina beauty queen entered the Top 10 of the pageant in Egypt on Thursday (Friday in the Philippines).
The rest of the Top 10 include representatives from United States of America, Mexico, Egypt, Belgium, Spain, Costa Rica, Nigeria, Malaysia, and Netherlands.
Paton is aiming for the Philippines' second Miss Eco International crown, after Cynthia Thomalla in 2018.
She earlier finished second runner-up in Miss Eco International's resort wear competition. Representatives from South Africa and United States were named first runner-up and Best in Resort Wear, respectively.
