MANILA, Philippines - It took unwavering determination and strong advocacy for Miss Earth 2015 Angelia Ong to shine among the 83 beauties from around the world.

Angelia, who bagged the Miss Earth title in Vienna, Austria last December, captured the hearts of many with her “we will, because we can” slogan. Unknown to some, this slogan was already a part of her campaign during her Miss Philippines-Earth reign. Now that she has gone global, her eagerness in pursuing her environmental advocacies and social causes also intensified.

“[Our] ongoing project is the ‘I Love My Planet Earth’ school tour wherein we go to public schools around the Philippines. We try our best to educate, inspire and encourage on how [students] can take care and preserve the environment,” Angelia shares.

The 25-year-old beauty also revealed on-going talks between Miss Earth and the United Nations (UN), which she hopes will result in a fruitful partnership.

“We’re very blessed enough to have a sit-down meeting with members of the UN in Vienna and now we have a follow-up meeting in the Philippines. I’m very hopeful that we will have a good relationship first before jumping into a partnership because they want to establish a relationship first and assess how can we both grow together; how Miss Earth could help the United Nations and vice versa.”

She’s also looking forward to a possible partnership with De La Salle-College of St. Benilde and USAID. With these recent developments, Angelia expresses fulfillment on how the Miss Earth organization is being tapped for the implementation of genuine causes.

With her vast responsibility as Miss Earth, Angelia is nothing short of exuding confidence. She achieves this by always knowing her worth as a woman. Apart from this, she also recognizes how Ever Bilena become a support to her journey as a beauty queen.

 “Ever Bilena has been a loyal partner not only of Miss Earth but also Miss Philippines-Earth for the past years. Ever Bilena has always reminded us that every Filipina is beautiful. It helped us enhance the beauty we all have. I really admire the passion the company puts in supporting women and Filipinas around the globe,” shares Angelia, who bagged the Miss Ever Bilena award during the Miss Philippines-Earth corporate visit in 2015.

Being an Ever Bilena woman, Angelia shares some beauty essentials fit for a beauty queen. Because superb lashes are a must for her, she turns to Ever Bilena False Eyelashes, which come in a number of styles. The well-loved EB Advance Brow Kit is also a hit for Angelia as it comes handy whenever she needs to groom her brows and achieve a neat set of arches. For her cheeks, Ever Bilena Cheek Blush in Raisin gives the perfect rosy glow. Lastly, a swipe of her new favorite lippie, the Ever Bilena Beauty Shine Lipstick in Dazzling Fuchsia, seals her glamorous look.

As Angelia embarks on this journey yet again, she will definitely bring her relevant and timely advocacies to greater heights.
