Philippines has been referred to as a powerhouse of pageantry because of the scintillating and confident beauty queens who have raised the country’s flag high at various international pageants. In the last three years, the country has shown dominance at Miss Eco International as well winning top placements.



In 2018, Cynthia Thomalla raised her Filipina flag high as she not only impressed everyone with her beauty and charm, she also won the Miss Eco International 2018 crown. Cynthia became the first Asian to win the international crown who bared her advocacy for sustainable tourism and responsible traveling at the competition.

Cynthia rose to fame when she participated at Miss World Philippines 2017. A look-alike of Hollywood star Anne Hathaway, Cynthia showcases the essence of being a true beauty queen. Thomalla is also a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador.



Next year in 2019, Philippines sent Maureen Montagne at Miss Eco International 2019 where she placed as the first runner-up with her incredible performance. From Taguig City, Maureen is a host and a model by profession and is of an American and Filipina heritage. Before winning the runner-up position at Miss Eco International 2019, Maureen was earlier adjudged as the first runner-up at Mutya ng Pilipinas 2013 and later she was crowned as Miss Arizona USA 2015. The diva also competed in Miss World Philippines 2018 where she placed as the first runner up. Maureen is currently a part of Binibining Pilipinas.
