ARMENIA, a former Soviet republic in the mountainous Caucasus region straddling Asia and Europe will have its grand debut in the Miss Earth 2015 pageant. This country, which is one of the earliest Christian civilizations in the world, will be among the over 90 countries which will take part in the Crystal Anniversary of the most relevant pageant in the planet.
Armenia which is best known by religious sites including the reconstructed Greco-Roman Temple of Garni and 4th-century Etchmiadzin Cathedral, headquarters of the Armenian Church, has survived many wars in its history as a nation. Its environment has suffered the most during those wars and it is good to note that its Government is working on effective environmental policies to restore its natural landscapes.
With Miss Earth Armenia becoming one the voices for the environment, she will take the lead in advocating for a greener and sustainable environment for the next generations of Armenia.
Let’s take a look at one of this year’s big Miss Earth debutantes!
ON HER NATIONAL PAGEANT:
“I took part in the national competition of Top Model Armenia 2015,

and Fashion” – Ashot Khachatryan.

I was blessed when I received the crown of Miss Earth Armenia and this is the first time in our history that we take part in Miss Earth !

THOUGHTS ON CLIMATE CHANGE:
“The Earth is our common home
and every person on the Earth ought to take care about health of the environment
– its ecosystems, green spaces, water resourses, wild nature, sea and ocean life.
I would like to raise my voice against pollution, global warming and climate change
because flora and fauna and the humanity all are interconnected with each other.
The health and well being of each of us depends on the health of the environment.
Besides planting the trees , which I do usually with my family ,
I would like to promote people to develop using of E-cars
and to create the electricity by using wind and sun!
So education is the key for making changes.”
AS ELEMENT OF THE EARTH:
“The best represents my personality is the earth element,
because I am connected with it with special feelings,
I feel it and enjoy and paint it’s amazing creations.”
EXPECTATIONS ON MISS EARTH 2015:
“Oh, I am so happy because I am going to have more than 90 friends from all over the world.
Every lady is the face of her country and every lady is unique and beautiful,
I can’t wait to meet all of them. I am already friend with Miss Earth Canada, Miss Earth Portugal,

I AM A WOMAN OF THE EARTH BECAUSE
