In Southeast Asia, there is one country that is silently gaining fame in the world of beauty pageantry. This is a country in the eastern-most part of the Indochinese peninsula who is now slowly taking pageant fans an opportunity to slowly dominate the world of pageantry.

Nowadays, the country is slowly gaining its momentum as a rising star in the world of pageantry as a form of entertainment and cultural integration with other countries.

For the first time in history, Vietnam managed to win their first-ever major beauty pageant crown. The quest to the crown is now finally accomplished by Nguyen Phuong Khanh.

Miss Earth 2018 Nguyen Phuong Khanh
Nguyen Phuong Khanh is a beauty queen from Vietnam who is crowned as Miss Earth 2018 and succeeding Karen Ibasco. She is a famous model in Vietnam, featured in commercial advertisements, clothing brands, and cosmetics endorser. Now that she won Miss Earth 2018, Nguyen is now an instant celebrity in her country, especially upon returning to her homeland.

What's interesting about her is the way she answered each time a question is given to her. She is the first major beauty queen who preferred to speak in English. There were no translators present during her interviews, the final questions, and media presentation. Why? she managed to improve her English language proficiency when she studied at a University in Singapore with a degree in Marketing. That was the time she is able to answer any questions in English. In her winning answer as a millennial, the most important issue is not to overspend ourselves in social media, but to start caring for our environment. If we start to pour our attention to our environment, then we can transform our planet into a better place.

In the future, Nguyen hopes to continue her passion to become a successful marketing advertiser. Her initial goal is to start creating a clothing brand under her name and start to build a new fashion industry. At the moment, Phuong Khanh is set to concentrate on her responsibilities as the reigning Miss Earth as she is now the face of the organization's campaign to preserve our environment. One of her advocacies is the eradication of plastic waste in our environment. Phuong Khanh is certain that the single use of disposable plastic is responsible for polluting our environment, which is evident in rivers, lakes, beaches, oceans, and on land.
