One of the more environmentally eloquent candidates in Miss Philippines Earth 2012 is the representative of the Province of Negros Oriental. She is Glenna Christina Duch, 18, and a Business Management major of Silliman University. I have seen one of her guestings on the ANC Channel, and boy, can she speak with a lot of sense. If not for her less than impressive height of 5’4″ – for international standards, that is – I would gladly put her on top in an instant. Following the likes of petite winners Athena Imperial and Psyche Resus, having another vertically challenged bet for Miss Earth does not sit too well with pageant fans and followers. But if a creditable height is not a consideration, she would make a wonderful Queen of the Environment. For sure, Samantha Purvor and Kathleen Subijano will not let their guards down in her presence, though. Let’s see who will come out fiercest in the end.
