Ms PH Earth Santa Rita, Pampanga: Angelie Ocampo
NAME: Angelie Crizelle S. Ocampo
MUNICIPALITY OR CITY: Santa Rita Pampanga
How she describes her childhood: I belong to a quite big family, living a very simple life. We're not rich but I grew up happy and content. Like a normal child, I grew up with friends, playing in the backyard and bathing in the rain. My siblings and I used to go to our grandparents’ house and play with our cousins.
Most memorable moment: My most memorable moment was the moment I passed the screening of Miss Philippines Earth 2014. It gave me the chance to represent our municipality in a national pageant. Because this will be the first time that someone will represent our municipality in this pageant, I felt honoured to be one of the official candidates and to be a good example in protecting our nature.
Environmental advocacy: I believe in proper waste disposal, which for me is not just a simple task, but a system. It involves the actual process of segregating waste, supporting the people behind it, enhancing the 3Rs and most of all, being a more responsible steward to the resources bestowed upon us.

I cherish its purpose to help Mother Earth. But it’s not a simple task. It takes discipline and commitment. I have these values and with your help, we can work together, identify the specific areas of concern, and contribute to preserve nature.
