- Karen Ibasco won the Miss Earth 2017 pageant
- The event was held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City
- Here Q&A portion went viral
Philippine representative Karen Ibasco was crowned Miss Earth 2017 not only for her stunning beauty but also for her epic answer during the final Q&A portion.
The pageant’s grand coronation night took place on November 4, at the Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay City.
KAMI obtained a video of her Q&A portion from Instagram.
When the 26-year-old university instructor was asked in the final Q&A portion about the biggest enemy of Mother Earth, she had this to say:
"I believe that the real problem in this world is not climate change. The real problem is us because of our ignorance and apathy.
"What we have to do is to start changing our ways, to start recalibrating our minds and redirecting our steps because together, as a global community, our micro-efforts will have a macro-effect to help save our home, our planet.”
Karen was among the final four of the beauty contest including Juliana Franco of Colombia, Lada Akimova of Russia, Nina Robertson of Australia.
She could not help but cry after learning that she has won the pageant.
KAMI wants to remind you not to be afraid to dream big and to work hard in achieving it!
