Miss Earth back home in Cebu
The Queen is back in her hometown. More than two weeks after her victory, the newly crowned Miss Earth 2014, Jamie Herrell, arrived in Cebu to spend Christmas with her family.
“Nothing beats home. Life has been more hectic after the pageant, but still it’s good for me. I also need to catch up with my family first since I will be busier with my Miss Earth duties,” Herrell told reporters.
The 20-year-old Cebuana said she looks forward to upcoming travels to Finland, Egypt and Guam.
Herrell, who was 2013’s Sinulog Festival Queen, would not confirm initial reports that she would be dancing in next month’s Sinulog festival. But she promised to be in town during the Sinulog as she is a Sto. Niño devotee.
“The Sto. Niño has done a lot for me especially with all the blessings that I have received.”
The Miss Earth crown she said “is not just about publicity work. It’s not about being pretty. I want to become the voice of the people and to help the environment.”
Herrell, who thanked the Cebuano community for their support in the contest, said it had been her dream to win the Miss Earth title.
She said she will be active in the “Think Twice Campaign” which encourages people to find ways to save mother Earth.
