23 year old Aussie Filipina, Kathleen Paton is an actress and singer. Born in Boracay, she is currently residing in Melbourne, Australia. She has a staggering height of 174cm which will definitely make her stand out. Talking about her academics, she has done her high school from Camberwell High School and is currently pursuing Bachelors of Business at Victoria University.

Kathleen enjoys working out at the gym, hanging out with friends, swimming, singing and drawing. Along with this, Kathleen is a staunch advocate of Environmentalism which leads to the preservation and protection of plant and animal diversity. She believes in providing support for children in poverty and sustainable tourism.

During the final question-answer round at the Miss World Philippines 2021 ceremony, Paton was asked about the one thing that she needs to overcome, to which she answered, “One thing that you need to overcome is fear with your confidence and the fear of being rejected. I myself have suffered a lack of confidence when I was younger. I wasted a lot of time being stuck at home because I was afraid of going out of my comfort zone and I would tell my younger self even that if I could go back in time to overcome this fear because you have no idea what's out there, and what's there for you.”



This Filipina has already won the title of Miss Manila 2018 and Miss Teen International 2017 where she represented her homeland the Philippines. In addition to this, she even took part in Miss Teen Asia Australia 2017 and became the 1st runner up. The experience she gained through these pageants will definitely take her ahead at the international stage.

The 7th version of Miss Eco International will take place in March 2022 in Egypt, where delegates from more than 30 countries and autonomous territories will compete for the international title and crown for two weeks. At the end of the event, Miss Eco International 2021 Gizzelle Uys from South Africa will crown her successor as Miss Eco International 2022.
