Miss Earth Brazil 2013 Priscilla Martins
Priscilla (or Priscila) seems to be quite a popular name in Brazil. Three good examples are Priscila Machado who placed 3rd in Miss Universe 2011, Priscila Zandoná who was Miss Earth-Air in 2003 and Priscilla Meirelles who was named Miss Earth 2004. Now comes Priscilla Martins, Brazil’s bet for Miss Earth 2013 (watch her eco-beauty clip below).
The 21 year-old 5’9″ beauty is a Law student who works as a Professional Model on the side. She took over the title from Camila Brant who went on to place 4th (or Miss Earth-Fire) during the Versailles Alabang finals last year.
With Brazil’s record of elemental placements in Miss Earth, will this Priscilla add a new one to the list? 😉

Miss Earth Brazil 2012 Camila Brant
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! 😉
