Miss Earth Netherlands 2017 Faith Landman will soon crown a new Miss Earth Netherlands 2018 (Miss Beauty of the Netherlands 2018) queen. The newly crowned queen will then represent Netherlands at the Miss Earth 2018 Pageant where Miss Earth 2017 Karen Ibasco will crown her successor.

But before the grand coronation night of the Miss Earth Netherlands pageant concludes, it’s important for us to get to know the finalists that will be fighting for the Earth crown of Netherlands.

Of all the contestants, we chose 5 that we believe are the ones standing out in the race to the crown currently, and here is the scoop on one of our favourites.

Makiko Jolie Kelatow is 19 years old and was born and raised in the Zaanstreek. Currently she’s graduating in International Aviation Operations. After this summer she will probably start her studies in Business IT & Management.

Talking about her victory moment from the Miss Earth Noord Holland 2018 election, she says, “I was so very happy and amazed that the announcement and coronation were a bit in a big haze! On one of the photos after the announcement you can see me giving a vow during the coronation. Here I was thinking of everyone who unfortunately could not be at that moment.”

Makiko hopes to develop herself more and grow in a personal way through the experiences she gains at Miss Earth Netherlands. In the months to come she believes that she would certainly go through difficult times and thinks that it would be very constructive for her.

She also wants to enjoy all the opportunities and wonderful things that she possibly can experience in the near future. She wants to use the platform that the Miss Earth Netherlands 2018 election offers her, to make young people more aware. She says “Together, small steps will be big steps towards a more sustainable earth.”

Makiko’s dire perseverance makes her unique. If she has a goal in mind, she puts in her hundred percent to achieve it.

She is a fan of Harry Potter and can talk about all Harry Potter films, including spells at length. Although she has Indonesian roots, she has a Japanese name.

The Miss Earth Netherlands 2018 gala will be held at Studio 21 in Hilversum on 31st August 2018. The coronation has previously been held at the World Hotel Wings for two years, but, due to the increase in the audiences that the pageant hosted, the venue has been changed to fulfill the increased seat requirements.
