KOTA KINABALU: Nineteen-year-old Deidre Ann Walker made Sabah proud when she became the first runner-up in the national-level pageant of Miss Malaysia Earth 2012 on July 15 at Syuen Hotel, Ipoh, Perak.
The runner-up was Kylie Wong from Perak, who bagged the Miss Malaysia Earth-Water 2012 title while Teoh Lee Miang from Pahang was the new Miss Malaysia Earth – Fire 2012.
Deidre, who was crowned as Miss Malaysia Earth – Air 2012, also swept two major titles throughout the pageant week when she was announced as the winner of Miss Earth Media Gorgeous 2012 and Miss Yee Hup 2012.
During the question and answer session, Deidre was posed a question on what role would she take up to reduce the pollution level in Malaysia.
The beautiful lass gave a brilliant answer by asserting that she would reduce pollution by enhancing local and international laws. She used the current haze problems in Sumatra as example.
She added that this problem could be tackled with a stricter enforcement of the international laws as she believes that human beings have the ability and authority to sustain and conserve the vital nature resources.
Deidre wrapped up her answer by urging all the guests who were present during the night with a thought-provoking quote – “Do not wait until the last tree has been cut, the last fish has been caught and only the last river polluted, then only mankind realizes that money cannot be eaten.”
Joanna Marie Faurillo and Xandria who also represented Sabah in the pageant, did not secure a placing in the top four. However, they still made it to the top 10.
All the Sabah representatives did very well throughout the whole pageant week and the grand coronation night.
Xandria won the first place in Miss Malaysia Earth 2012 – Best in Talent with her peacock dance, an elegant traditional Chinese folk dance while Joanna grabbed the title of Miss Charming look SUB beauty 2012.
Mandy Nandu, the director of MNE Productions, also the state organizer of Miss Earth Sabah, was really happy and extremely proud with all the achievements of the Sabahan girls.
Their roles will not end after the pageant because as the state organizer, she will ensure and arrange environmental programs and activities for the winners where they can contribute to the community of Sabah, especially in spreading the awareness of environment protection.
Mandy added that she was really happy the girls shared their knowledge and experience gained during the pageant week of Miss Earth Sabah 2012 with the other contestants.
The other contestants were very impressed by the activities that they have done in Sabah and in another way, eventually the Sabah girls promoted the state really well to all the rest.
It is indeed what Mandy has always wanted, that is to send representatives of high quality, equipped with not just beauty but also talents and intelligence to compete in the national level.
The reigning titleholders dedicate their year as the Green Ambassadors to promote environmental projects and to address issues concerning the environment to the community of Sabah. (theborneopost)
