ENGLAND
STEPHANIE WYATT

Height: 175 cm
Measurements: 36 in - 24 in - 36 in
Occupation: Paralegal
Flower Name: English Rose

Advocacy: Can you bare no clean air? Because the underlying principle is always climate change. As an environmental advocate and Ambassador for Mission Awareness and Lead Youth ambassador for We Do Ethical, I understand the effect climate change has on our Earth and countries apart from my own. Because I always believed that if not now, then when? And if not us, then who? I have been guiding people towards better living conditions in 3rd world countries as well as my own by initiating beach cleans to make the seas a better place for animals to co-habitate, our world is 71% water and ecosystems rely heavily on this to survive, tree planting to not only have fresh air and stop deforestation but to balance the atmosphere and ease global warming and holding local workshops to make re-usable sanitary wear for Kenyan Girls. An important factor of my advocacy is to include the children, as we will finish of the work we have started. Educating the youth to make biodegradable plastic from cactus and eco alternative that can be used in everyday life. My advocacy has harmonized through my life and brought me to Miss Earth for a purpose. Miss Earth is a global platform where I believe that boundaries can be surpassed to help our earth and those in need.

WHAT ARE THE SPECIAL QUALITIES OF THE FLOWER? HEALING? FUNCTION?
Known in English history as the union rose, used as a symbol of peace; England now uses this as it’s symbol. The rose family has many health benefits: invigorating revitalizing, regenerative and wound healing. The first essential oil going back to the tenth century rose essential oil is very effective against anxiety, stress, overwork, exaggerated emotions and temporary depression. Rose water has antiseptic, antibacterial properties, which means it can help wounds heal faster, keeping them clean and fighting infections. Compatible with and benefiting all skin types.

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS (8-13 YEARS OLD).
I was exposed to a harsh reality of suffering across the world at the age of 8, learning that in Europe, a heat wave alone resulted in 35,000 deaths as an effect of climate change. I could not believe that people across the world died from a product of human actions. That pivotal moment launched on a lifelong ambition to help Mother Earth and those in need. Becoming qualified in law and applying my skills, my campaigns for global change. An example of which is humanitarian work starting at the age of 10 where I flew to Brazil. I taught young girls English in order that we gain employability skills and helps up-cycling workshops using clothes donated from England. I was struck to learning communities considered the effects of climate change as a part of normal life. From this experience I organized tree planting activities litter picks and educating the students at the local schools in my country, helping the quality of life and the importance of Mother Earth.

WHAT IS YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENT?
Because of my love for Mother Earth and my people, I was able to tackle inequality gap between the attendance of females and males in Kenya for school and the pollution of the largest industry, which is clothing. I learned that in 2017 1 out of 10 girls missed school because of their period and so my put up a local shop with the help of volunteers that helped up-cycle these old clothes that were donated to them turning them into sanitary towels. And these would aid the girls in regulating their period and allowing them to attend school.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
My Mother is Brazilian, and a huge influence of my environmental work. It was from my mother that I learned the importance of education in third world countries. We taught together and surpassed boundaries since we were able to make education accessible to girls who never thought would get one. This is the reason we continually worked hard to ensure that third world countries would develop in terms of the education needed.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
I learned how to take the un-thinkable and make it possible. Making biodegradable plastic from cactus was the most unusual thing I have ever done. Alternatives like this are critical to help save our planet and developments like this may seem small but can make a huge difference. I can't wait to showcase this as my talent at the Miss Earth Competition 2019.

WHAT TIPS CAN YOU SHARE TO PROMOTE ECOTOURISM & CLIMATE CHANGE?
As a country we are fighting against climate change by promoting eco-tourism. There are many eco-logical sites and preserving our tourist destinations for people to see and enjoy is important to us. Our best tools are education, from my experience of teaching in schools; education is the most powerful tool we can use to change the world because the lessons we learn as children remains with us through our lifetime. Engaging the youth, governments and our neighborhoods by spreading the simple yet effective 5’Rs we can teach people the solutions to climate change, Re-think lets re-think our everyday lives in terms of what we can do for the planet we live on, reduce buying products that are local and organic with minimal packaging is a great way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Re-use, up-cycle your clothing by holding local workshops to make re-usable sanitary towels for 3rd world countries, always be socially and environmentally responsible, Recycle, recycling helps reduce the need for raw materials so that rainforests can be preserved and Respect, it is our collective and individual responsibility to care for the world we live in.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY?
That we are a fighting people, with dreams and with a view to a better future for all.England continuously works hard for the protection of Mother Earth by introducing bans on coal, mining, diesel cars and plastic items such as straws, cotton buds and coffee stirrers. With these laws we generate greener energy, saving oceans, reducing carbon emissions and creating a balanced eco system. We are also home to the international environmental advocate, David Attenborough with his dedication to the natural planet by spreading awareness through his documentaries. As a country we are the 3rd largest producers of wind energy. England is abundant with living animals and wildlife, biodiversity in their country is beautiful and we encourage natural systems by maintaining wetlands by conserving water and reducing irrigation, this is why the green belt in their country is so important, it preserves England’s land saving thousands of homes for animals.

WHAT CAN YOU PROMOTE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY?
As England fights against climate change we are preserving over 20,000 miles of historical coastline. England is home to many eco-logical sites such as the natural formation of Durdle door and Lulworth Cove with its blue waters and pebble beaches in the province of Dorset making it a must-see destination. In London the capital city, a cultural dynamism where congestions zones were introduced in 2003, with charges that aim to reduce high traffic flow and pollution in central areas and raise investment funds for sustainable transport systems. Known as the land of rolling greenery and flora we are proud to say that just over 90% of their land has not been built on and this is because their land is protected by policies such as the green belt. The historical landscapes hold some of the world’s greatest natural wonders, which are a popular spot for eco-tourism.
