PH Crowned As ‘Miss Eco International 2018’ For The First Time

Fifty-one candidates fought for it, but only one earned the crown and the title of being the new ‘Miss Eco International 2018’ and it is none other than— Philippines!

Yes, Philippines has once again won a title! Cynthia “Thia” Thomalla, a Cebuana, made history last April 27 after giving her winning answer in Cairo, Egypt and being the first ever Filipina to win Miss Eco International.

When asked about “what do beauty pageants add to people,” she answered,

“I think that the most relevant thing that beauty queens can add to the world is by raising awareness on their own causes. For example, Miss Eco International is raising the advocacy of sustainable tourism and protecting the environment. And that is the main point of doing beauty pageants, by raising awareness to help the earth.”

Cynthia is among those queens from the Miss World Philippines 2018 who also made history. Teresita Ssen Marquez is the first Filipina to win Reina Hispanoamericana. And Sophia Senoron, the very first Miss Multinational.

Meanwhile, Indonesia was declared as the first runner-up, Vietnam as the second runner-up, Costa Rica was the third runner-up and Kelin Rivera Kroll finished fourth runner-up. The Miss Eco International pageant aims to promote Eco-tourism and also help cancer survivors.
