What environmental project will you create to promote the protection of Mother Earth and why?
My project is environmental education for children. Why? Because it is critically important and should start before school begins. Early environmental education experiences help shape children’s values, perspectives and understanding of the environment and how to interact with it. Yet many children have little or no meaningful exposure to environmental education or opportunities to connect with the natural world because they are involved with activities that isolate them from it.
What makes you proud of your country and what can you promote about it?
I am proud to represent Indonesia, the richest country. American has technological advances so we can call them a superpower, but the richest country is where I was born and where I am standing now, why? We have the largest gold mines, and with best quality of gold in the world. This country has the largest natural gas reserves in the world precisely at Natuna-kalimantan Timur, this country has the largest tropical forest in the world. This country has the world’s widest sea surrounded by two oceans: Indian and the Pacific and have millions of species of fish. This country has exotic scenery from the top of the mountain to the sea and has a unique culture. In Indonesia we can learn many things. How to promote my country? First, I need to be proud of my country, second, join an international cultural festival, third, using online media promotion, fourth, become a tourist ambassador. And also with Miss Earth I can promote Indonesia.
