From Miss Cebu City to Miss Earth 2014: 25 photos of Jamie Herrell's transformation
Back then, she said right after winning her Miss PH Earth crown: “I want the whole Philippines and all Filipinos to know that the judges picked the right person to get this crown.”
Truer words could not have been spoken – now 20, she has bested 83 others to win the title of Miss Earth – last won by the Philippines in 2008. Soon, it will be time to look at what projects and organizations she'll be aiding during her reign.
From the competition's earliest days in this year's Miss Earth season in April 2014 to Jamie's most recent big win, let's take a look at her 2014 journey.
Head over here to check out Jamie's profile page, where she was still competing as Miss PH Earth Cebu City. "My environmental advocacy is to be against animal cruelty, because I have seen how some people treat animals in a wrong way and I believe animals should be treated with love or at least in a proper manner," she wrote in her profile.
