"In this contest, we participated in many different activities about protecting the environment. We planted trees in Egypt and collected trash on the beach... I believe Miss Eco Teen International contest is a great way to build friendships and also bring people together to join hands to make the Earth a waste-free place," said Anna Hoang.
She will continue doing the environmental activities as promised during the pageant, as well as contributing her support for the Miss Eco Teen International contest for many years to come.
