|Miss Earth 2015, Angelia Ong of the Philippines|
The video clip posted below is Angelia's answer to the nerve-racking question and answer round of the Miss Earth 2015 coronation night staged in Marx Halle, Vienna, Austria.
Question: Dear Miss Philippines, the slogan of Miss Earth for the last 15 years is 'Beauty for a Cause'. If you were asked to propose a new slogan for the next 15 years, what would it be?
Answer: If I were to make a slogan for the next 15 years for Miss Earth, that would be, 'We will because we can'. I want to let everybody know that all things are possible and all things are feasible if we work together. We will, because we can.

And during the make or break question and answer portion of the pageant, she proved to everyone that she's more than just a pretty face. Her answer was concise, direct-to-the-point yet very substantial, heartfelt and convincing. The diction, the grammar and the way she delivered it was flawless. It was a powerful speech and the panel of judges who comprised mostly of distinguished Europeans with the United Nations' President in Vienna as the chairperson couldn't just resist the urge to crown a gorgeous lady who can be an excellent advocate, an eloquent spokesperson to the environmental causes of the Miss Earth Organization.
