The representative of the Philippines in Miss Earth 2020 Roxanne "Roxie" Baeyens is confident that she has a competitive edge over the other candidates in the said international beauty pageant.

According to the Igorota beauty queen from Besao, Mountain Province, this is because she is the daughter of an environmentalist.

The Igorota-Belgian beauty who represented Baguio City in the Miss Earth Philippines 2020, said that as a child she had experienced planting and she already knew her responsibilities to mother nature.

She stressed that upholding environmental responsibilities is at the heart and work.

The Igorota beauty queen added that she is just preparing the question and answer portion and her projection in front of the camera, especially since the coronation of Miss Earth 2020 will also be made virtual.

Roxie will vie for the title of Miss Earth 2020 which will be held on November 29 and will be aired on TV5.

Roxanne Baeyens, Miss Earth 2020 Philippines' representative, unveils her national costume

Roxanne Baeyens unveiled her national costume in the Asia and Oceania group competition on Thursday, November 19.

Bayenes shared on her social media accounts that the story of the creation of the Philippines "Si Malakas at Si Maganda" inspired her costume made by Jorick Lopez Limpag.

"This costume was inspired by the legend of Malakas and Maganda, a folktale in the Philippines where humanity has started. The bamboo that was broke in half by the bird, a symbol of where we could fly again. As the Earth faces this pandemic, this costume proudly synthesizes the hardships of those who battled the pandemic with its headpiece that can be converted into a mask, made out of rubber curves and gemstones. A crown that is pictured like a sun, the rise of new beginning. The dress that resembles colors that of the Earth, a nature we see through its beauty, a picture of Malakas and Maganda's originality. Cut out from beads that mirror the leaves and gemstones. Jewelries around the neck, hands and feet inspired by the roots of trees, to remind that we are rooted to the planet we call Earth. A pair of wings carved with rubber slices, capiz and stones, like we are ready to fly. Within this costume, it can be said that the sun will rise, we will try, and we will fly again, like a folktale we all know. We are all beautiful creatures who are strong." -Roxanne Baeyens
