In every aspect of our life, we always realize about our recent actions because this is a learning process that reminds us to move forward. If we make mistakes, we ought to challenge it by using our humbleness to offer our apologies towards the people who were affected by our actions. A person who is brave enough to admit mistakes deserves either a second or a third chance after committing a mistake in the past. This is for as long as apologies are sincere enough that they will do anything to regain the trust of those individuals affected by their actions.

The pressure that is vested upon her is affecting her confidence and self-esteem as she is now competing for Miss Earth 2016. She is currently representing the Philippines and hoping that she is the third woman to continue the winning streak for the Philippines since 2014.

Miss Earth Philippines 2016 Imelda Bautista Schweighart made a controversial route online when she made a comment against President Rodrigo Duterte. She mentioned in front of Miss Austria that the Philippine president is currently doing Hitler stuff here in the Philippines. Miss Austria was shocked and replied to her that that is real crazy. Netizens who witness the conversation were in shock during that time and immediately left numerous comments aggravated by their emotional response towards Imelda Schweighart. Netizens quickly lamented against the verbalization of Imelda Schweighart, which made pageant fans in the Philippines gone wild.

Prior from commenting about Duterte's actions similar with Hitler, Imelda asked Miss Earth Austria if Hitler was from Austria. However, Miss Austria immediately indicated that Imelda made a bad question because normally, Austrians do not really talk about Hitler. But after her statement, she admitted that Hitler was indeed from Austria. The reason behind why Austria never talk about this person is obviously due to his atrocity that left Europe merciless during the height of both First and Second World Wars.

Along with Imelda, here are top 15 predicted Miss Earth 2016 candidates 

Beforehand, President Duterte made a comment during a press conference that he likened Hitler's heartless actions during the Holocaust. The president is referring to Hitler's execution of at least 3 million jews during the Holocaust period in the Second World War. This was a comment that generated a backlash from Germany, stating that President Duterte should make an apology for his statements.

The jew community in the Philippines is disappointed by President Duterte's comments for likening Hitler's treatment towards the Jews. The jew community around the world knew that during the holocaust, Hitler's treatment was unacceptable because he slaughtered millions of them during his military renegade during the Second World War.

President Duterte then apologized to the Jewish community, highlighting that he was referring to the war against illegal narcotics in the country. He hopes that during his term, the Philippines can transform into one of the most peaceful nations in the world. People could walk through the night without being at risk for being assaulted by criminal offenders along the streets.

For Imelda Schweighart, she was also sorry for her comparison of Duterte towards Hitler due to his anti-narcotics drive.
