Angelia Gabrena Ong was crowned Miss Philippines Earth 2015 last May 31, 2015 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City. She accepted her crown and sash from Miss Earth 2014, Jamie Harrell. Angelia will be representing the country in the international Miss Earth competition later this year.
In 2012, she moved from Iloilo City to Manila to continue her studies in Marketing Management at the De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde. Angelia works as a part-time consultant at Manila City Hall and a marketing firm. Born on June 27, 1990, the 24-year old expects to graduate this October.
Angelia finished second runner-up at the Miss Manila beauty pageant in 2014 and was awarded People’s Choice Face of the Bb. Pilipinas pageant in 2011 where she represented Iloilo City.
Angelia’s elemental court are: Miss Philippines AIR, Chanel Olive Thomas from San Antonio, Nueva Ecija; Miss Philippines WATER, Catherine Joy Marin from Bago City; Miss Philippine FIRE, Carla Angela Valderrama from Siniloan, Laguna; and, Miss Philippines ECO-TOURISM, Jona Sweett from Iloilo City.
As Miss Philippines Earth, Angelia’s advocacy would be to minimize carbon footprint through Organic Urban Agriculture and/or Sustainable EcoTourism. Angelia recently engaged the assistance of Anton Antonio, from a group known as The UPlanders, to enhance her already admirable level of knowledge relating to the environment. The UPlanders is composed of graduates, students and members of the faculty of the University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU) of Los Banos, Laguna who are involved in the practice of environment and natural resources management. Antonio is also a member of a group of social media pro-environment advocates and activists known as the Pro EARTH Crusaders. The UPlanders and Pro EARTH Crusaders are committed to support Miss Philippines Earth 2015, Angelia Gabrena Ong.
Just my little thoughts…
