Miss Earth 2015 Angelia Gabrena Ong of the Philippines

Miss Earth 2015 Angelia Ong crowned by Jamie
Herrell, Miss Earth 2014. Both from the Philippines.
Although considered to be one of the formidable contenders during the Miss Earth 2015 beauty for a cause pageant in Vienna Austria, many were caught by surprise when Angelia Gabrena Ong clinched the almost impossible back-to-back victory. Considering that the reigning titleholder that time was a fellow Filipina as well, breezing to the top was quite insurmountable. But Angelia's determination was unparalleled. She was in fact, unstoppable. Angelia's excellent presentation skills coupled with her brilliant speech during the make or break question-and-answer portion that visibly made her stood out from the rest of her competitors have undoubtedly sealed her fate as the third Filipina who emerged victorious in winning the Miss Earth crown. With Angelia's victory, the Philippines made history as one of the very few countries like Venezuela, who bagged a back-to-back win in one of the third biggest and the most important beauty pageants in the world.

Angelia's triumph though was not without a string of negativities and bitterness. It was plagued with baseless allegations of fraud and hatred from those unbelievers and nationalities of countries who were desperate to win but always defeated in the end. However, inspite of the bashing that Angelia received after the coronation, the crowned Earth warrior seemed to remain unfazed, still poised and gracefully unperturbed. Suffice it to say, Angelia has managed to stay on top of the game and has exceeded expectations from her valiant supporters as well as from the prying eyes of her staunchest critics.

Angelia is in fact one of the most traveled Alpha Queens alongside with the reigning Miss World 2015 Mireia Lalaguna of Spain and another Filipina compatriot Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach. Angelia has been globe-trotting recently, traveling from one country to another, gracing the national finals for this year's Miss Earth delegates and advocating for the organization's environmental campaign which includes teaching the school children the love for Mother Nature. Rheunion Island, Vietnam, the United States of America (California, New York, Washington DC and Florida), Colombia, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, China are the countries she has visited so far. And before she relinquishes her crown at the Mall Of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines, this October 25th, Angelia is scheduled to be attending an important affair in India and Singapore.

What a busy year indeed for a hardworking Miss Earth ever like Angelia! And the beautiful Eco Warrior couldn't just be so thankful enough for this wonderful once in a lifetime opportunity. 

“Since winning, it has really been amazing. We’ve been doing a lot of projects for Miss Earth, partnering with a lot of people and organizations. What really excites me the past few weeks [are] the travels.” – Angelia Gabrena Ong, Miss Earth 2015.
