Brazil is the most successful country-participant in Miss Earth. With two winners (Priscilla Meirelles and Larissa Ramos) , three elemental Miss Air (Drielly Bennettone, Simone Regis and Priscila Zandona) and one Miss Fire (Tatiana Alves), the South American country is well on its way to another exciting participation in 2012 with the entry of 22 year-old Camila Brant in this year’s roster.
The 5’9″ Camila is from Patos de Minas and is a very competitive young woman, having represented Brazil in Miss Intercontinental way back 2009. Her environmental advocacy – as stated in the Miss Earth website – is as follows:
“Open mind to project sustainability. I think what I advocate most is waking up the world to the realization that we are headed down a wasteful path. I want to change the course of our current future of destroying the earth through our wasteful ways. I want to be a part of a new norm, being conscience of our everyday activities and consuming in a much more efficient fashion. We can effectively advocate pro-environment policies when our voice joins a chorus calling for change. Sustainability includes recognizing global warming and significantly reversing our negative contribution to it, as well as supporting energy producing methods that have the least environmental impact. All of this means change and innovation would be on the horizon. The good news here is that the more the public is informed about the pros and cons of various types of energy production, they tend to influence their politicians. So, if the public can be more informed with truth and innovative options, then they will likely elect politicians who also subscribe to truth and innovate for the better.”
With Camila, I can confidently say that ME2012 has another clear favorite in its hands! 😉
