Kathleen Paton secures the crown for 2022 Miss Eco International in ceremonies held on March 17 (March 18 in Manila) at the Triumph Luxury Hotel in Egypt, giving the Philippines its second victory four years after Cynthia Thomalla won the title in 2018.

The beauty queen competed with 40 other candidates. She then advances to top 21 after winning the Best Eco Video award.

Kathleen Paton moved up to top 10 after being questioned about water contamination, which she saw as a major concern in the Philippines.

“A lot of Filipinos don’t have access to clean drinking water and I believe it is a right for every single human being, especially to my Filipinos, to have access to clean water,” she said.

To resolve this, Paton stated that she will work on providing free water filtration systems to communities across the country.

Paton landed in the top 5 after she answered the question, “As a title holder, you’re a public figure. Do you think it’s important to stay neutral on controversial social issues or to use your title to promote your own belief and why?”

She answered: “I do believe as a leader and as someone who is very influential in society, we sometimes have to use our voice in a very neutral state of mind because we have a very influential position. But in doing so, we also need to use our voice in order to motivate other people to stand up for what is right and I think that takes a lot of good moral compass.”

The other winners were Belgium (1st runner-up), USA (2nd runner-up), Spain (3rd runner-up), and Malaysia (4th runner-up). – WhatALife!
