Stephanie Wyatt, 19, from Dorset was crowned the new Miss Earth England on Saturday the 22nd June 2019 at the Arden Hotel in Birmingham who was sponsored by Millennium Balti in Leamington Spa. Stephanie not only walked away as the winner of Miss Earth England where she will later this year be representing England on an international platform of millions of people around the world but also the award winner of a very special award title “Beauties for a Cause Eco Ambassador” of 2019 for her accomplishments in the journey to the final making appearances in her area as an ambassador for Beauties for a Cause, teaming with environmental, Eco activities and social causes in the lead up to the finals.
Stephanie’s advocacy is to preserve and restore Mother Earth as from a very young age she was exposed to the harsh reality of suffering around the world and knew that she could be the change.
Despite the stigma on beauty pageants Miss Earth is an environmentally focused competition and is a platform for change where the contestants have to make a message board with their advocacy on, because we all have a collective and individual responsibility to preserve and attend to the world we live in. They also have to make an Eco-warrior outfit and Stephanie wore an outfit completely made out of real flowers.
Stephanie not only wanted to be socially responsible but environmentally responsible also. That’s why in 2017 she set up her own project where she looked at tackling not only the worlds second largest polluting industry, which is actually clothing, but period poverty. She holds local workshops at her library where the public donate unused clothing and she up-cycles them into re-usable sanitary wear for the girls of Kenya, this then enabled them to go to school. Stephanie hopes to set up many like-minded projects throughout her reign as 3rd world countries are the reason why she puts her heart and soul into the work she does.
Stephanie said ” I am extremely honoured to be put in a position where i will be attending the Miss Earth Final the 3rd most prestigious platform in the world to represent England and meet so many like-minded woman. She would like to thank the Miss Earth England organisation and I hope to do England proud, this is a dream come true.”
