It is again another celebratory moment for Filipinos worldwide as Miss Cynthia Thomalla is the first Filipina representative to win Miss ECO International. She was crowned at the Cairo Opera House in Egypt on April 27.
Miss Indonesia Astira Vernadeina finished first runner-up, Nguyen Thi Dung of Vietnam came in second runner-up and Costa Rica Glennys Medina was named third runner-up and Kelin Rivera Kroll of Peru was fourth runner-up.
For her Eco video prepared for the competition, Cynthia went back to Southern Leyte, where she showcased what the province has to offer. Manila, Ormoc City, Palawan, and Davao Oriental are also featured in the video.
“Thank you so much for everyone who helped me, voted for me and supported me through day 1 ever since Miss World Philippines and until Miss Eco International. Maraming maraming salamat po, this is all for you guys,” Thia said.
