The 24-year-old model beat eight other glamorous contestants from across Liberia to win Liberia’s first ever miss earth pageantry.

The event, which was organized by La Queen Entertainment through the office of Miss Liberia Wokie Dolo with support from the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC), was geared toward creating awareness on the importance of a clean environment.

The event also highlighted the danger of global warming as well as climate change while at the same time showcasing some of the country’s finest female talents.

Held under the theme “Promoting Clean and Healthy Environment”,  the competition brought together young women from diverse backgrounds to compete for the crown.

According to the organizers, the intention was to promote young Liberian talents through pageantry.

“Our mission is to re-brand young Liberian men and women through pageantry and creative display if beauty, fashion, music, and traditional culture,” the organizers said.

“La Queen main focus is to ensure that young and aspiring women build self-confidence, providing leadership, mentorship, bravery, and moral values as a way of helping them identify their real potential”.

Nine contestants from across the country competed for Miss Earth Liberia crown, with each one of them declaring to protect mother earth as ambassadors of both climate change and global warming.

Ms Bemah, 24, a graduate of the state-run University of Liberia with a Bachelor degree in Biology caught the attention of the judges and the crowds with her outfit and posture.

But her best movement of the night was when she answered a tricky question from Miss Nigeria 2018 Ihezue Mitchell, who served as one of the judges alongside Miss Liberia 2017 Bendu Parker Weeks-Lewis; Nigerian statesman and ex-movie star Desmond Elliot and Miss Cameroon 2018, Michele Sandra.

“The people are responsible for the pollution of the country because we are involved with activities that are harmful to our planet, and besides, we are the same people that make up the government, so protecting our environment needs to start from you and myself,” Ms Bemah concluded on her answer, when she was aksed “who is responsible for the pollution of our environment?”

Farming P.  Farmah of Bomi county finished as first runner up while 19-year-old Cleopatra D. Speare of Grand Bassa County clinched the second runner up.
