- KC Concepcion's half-sister Cloie Syquia Skarne is Miss Earth Sweden 2016
- Cloie will be competing with other Miss Earth candidates in October here in the Philippines
- It is one of Cloie's childhood dream to become a beauty queen
Dreams do come true!
This is what KC Concepcion's half-sister proved when she won as Miss Earth Sweden on Monday, August 29 (PT).
Cloie Syquia Skarne, who shares the same father as KC, will be Sweden’s representative in the upcoming Miss Earth 2016 pageant that would be staged in the Philippines this October.
“I’m Miss Earth Sweden 2016! Thank you to those who have supported me and believed in me. I would not have been who I am today without you,” Cloie said in her Instagram post on Monday.
Meanwhile, also on her Instagram post, KC revealed that it has been Cloie’s childhood dream to become a beauty queen someday. In another post, KC also said that all of her younger sister’s hard work and sacrifice have paid off.
“You’ve reached another milestone @cloiesyquia! 2016 has been good to you. After all the sleepless nights, uncertainty, beauty pageant lessons & yes, diet shakes… You did it!!!...,” KC wrote.
It can be recalled that just recently, Cloie visited the Philippines and spent some time with her sisters KC and another half-sister Garrie Concepcion. One of their bonding activities was working out as apart of Cloie’s prep work for the pageant.
Cloie is the daughter of actor Gabby Concepcion and model Jenny Syquia. She, however, decided to adopt her stepfather’s surname, Filip Skarne. On the other hand, Garrie is Gabby’s daughter with businesswoman Grace Ibuna.
Cloie has been described by other people as a "kind-hearted, results-oriented, internationally experienced person." She spends most of her time doing charitable works. She is also reported to give a fraction of her income to charity.
This October, Cloie will be competing against several another Miss Earth beauty queens, including Imelda Schweighart from Puerto Princesa City.
On other news, if Schweighart wins the beauty pageant this year, it would be a three-peat for the Philippines after Angelia Ong won in 2015 and Jamie Herrell in 2014.
