After Imelda Schweighart resigned from her post as Miss Philippines Earth, Kiara Giel Gregorio, the winning Miss Philippines Air, was set to take the reins.
However, many were surprised when she turned down the title, which made second runner-up Loren Mar Artajos the new Miss Philippines Earth.
In an Instagram post, Gregorio revealed the real reason why she turned down being the new Miss Philippines Earth, and just contented herself with her title.
She said that she would like to continue her studies since she is at the moment a law student in London.
She said that she has chosen to keep silent for the past days since she felt torn.
She has been dreaming of Miss Philippines Earth ever since, but she believes that God has blessed her with the Miss Philippines Air title at the competition because He has better plans for her.

She also mentioned that her journey as Miss Philippines Air is a mission for her to create a culture of change in the lives of a lot of people, thus, she will just continue her duty as such and not as the new Miss Earth.
In her post, aside from her elaborate explanation, she also thanked Carousel Organizer, the pageant’s organizer.
She also posted a congratulatory message to Loren Mar Artajos, saying that she knew from the start that Artajos deserves the Miss Earth title.
“Your humility and passion towards our cause just proves how deserving you are of this title. I knew it from the beginning. This is yours, you got this! We love you! On behalf of your 45 other MPE 2016 sisters, congratulations!” said Gregorio.
Like Gregorio, there are a lot of kind people in the world who aren't a wee bit selfish. This girl, without any hesitation, gave a beggar the best meal of his life!
