Group 1 of Miss Earth 2012 had so much fun with the Nayon ng Kabataan children.
Don't you just love the warmth in the eyes of (from top left, clockwise) Misses Switzerland Lea Sara Wittwer, Botswana Lorainne Ditsebe and Trinidad/Tobago Amryl Nurse with their respective wards?
When the Group 1 ladies of Miss Earth 2012 were assigned to visit Nayon ng Kabataan – a haven for abused, orphaned, abandoned, neglected and exploited children – for a day of leisure, they could not contain their excitement. They simply wanted to bond with the little ones and show them love and affection even for just a short period of time. And how!
After introductions, ‘getting-to-know-yous’ and some gift-giving, everyone trooped to Mall of Asia where the kids (with their big sisters) were treated to a filling lunch at Taste Asia. Afterwards, they headed to the SM Nido Science Discovery Center where fun learning was definitely had. It was like visiting a game arcade but with educational tools to try instead of mere coin-operated machines.
Of course, the day won’t be complete without endless photo ops, hugs and smiles, both from the candidates and the children who were made to feel wide-eyed special. 🙂
Miss Earth Trinidad & Tobago 2012 Amryl Nurse
Prior to being crowned as Miss Earth Trinidad & Tobago 2012, Amryl Nurse of Paria Waterfalls was awarded Miss Amity and Miss Intelligence. So aside from being the best in her national pageant, she can also be called the friendliest and the smartest. A Bachelor’s degree holder in Business Management, she is a member of Shashamane Sunrise – a charity geared toward educating children.
The 22 year-old Amryl is statuesque at 1.78m. In the Miss Earth website, she stated the following:
“…I can tell everyone that knowledge is power, that is a gift that no one can take away from you once given, so we need to seek to be educated and take action in knowing that the earth is ours and without it, we have nowhere to live.”
This lady looks to be a brainy one. Hopefully, she can carry through till the more crucial judging days of Miss Earth 2012. 😉
