‘You never miss the water till the well has run dry.’
This is the favorite Irish proverb of Miss Earth Northern Ireland 2012 Ciara Walker that she uses to sum up her environmental thrust. The 20 year-old fashion model from Derry may not look like your typical eco-warrior, but she sure has pretty good ideas on what needs to be done to preserve Mother Earth. Beyond the glamour, make-up and socializing that come with the responsibilities of a beauty queen, she is only too happy that her title has an added cause that could make her reign worth remembering.
Will Ciara be a strong entry for Northern Ireland in Miss Earth 2012? What do you think, dear readers? 😉
