Angelia Ong, who represented the Philippines, was crowned 2015 Miss Earth on Sunday.

During the question-and-answer portion of the pageant, Ong was asked what slogan she would propose to Miss Earth if it were going to change its current slogan “Beauty for a Cause.”

The 24-year-old beauty from the Philippines said: “If I were to make a slogan for the next 15 years for Miss Earth, that will be ‘We will, because we can.’ 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.”

Ong, who beat more than 80 other national delegates, succeeded Filipina beauty queen Jamie Herrel, who earned the title in 2014. She is the country's third representative to win the crown. The country's first Miss Earth Karla Henry won the crown in 2008.

The other winners are:

Miss Earth Fire: Thiessa Sickert of Brazil
Miss Earth Water: Brittany Payne of USA
Miss Earth Air: Dayanna Grageda of Australia
