“What do you think is the most important thing that beauty pageants add to the world?”

 “I think that the most relevant thing that beauty queens can add to the world is raising awareness on our own causes. For example, the Miss Eco Internationalis raising the advocacy of sustainable tourism and
protecting the environment. That is the main point of doing beauty pageants.by raising our voices to help the earth.”
