On July 16th I competed for the crown of Miss Earth England 2017 at the Burlington Hotel in Birmingham. I suppose dreams really do come true because I won! So that means I am heading to the Philippines on October 8th for one whole month. Words cannot truly describe how I am feeling, or maybe I’m just not sure how I am feeling. Some weird mixture between utter excitement, disbelief, immense gratitude and overwhelming blithe.
Preparing for the competition is a little daunting but not something I am shying away from. We have been told to bring 1 or 2 gowns with us, stage appropriate swimwear, a national costume and we even have to create our own superhero outfits! I will release my secret identity at a later date but I am so excited to stand on the stage, a heroine of the Earth.
You may have noticed my blog take a bit of an Eco turn. Part of being in Miss Earth is to spread a very eco message to everybody who follows us, if there is anything in particular you would like to know about or ways in which you wish you could be more eco-aware then please do message me! I am learning so much through this pageant but most of all it is showing me how many different ways there are to honour our Mother Earth.
If you would like me to make appearances or are interested in sponsorship please don’t hesitate to contact me.
