MANILA – Cloie Syquia Skarne, the half-sister of Filipina actress KC Concepcion, has been crowned Miss Earth Sweden 2016 and is set to represent the country in the Miss Earth 2016 pageant to be held in the Philippines later this year.
“I’m MISS EARTH SWEDEN 2016! Thank you to those who have supported me and believed in me. I would not have been who I am today without you,” Skarne posted on Instagram.
The daughter of Filipino actor Gabby Concepcion and model-actress Jenny Syquia, the 22-year-old Swedish beauty queen will be competing against delegates from over 90 countries, including the Philippines’ Miss Earth 2016 bet Imelda Schweighart.
It can be noted that the Philippines currently holds a back-to-back win in the prestigious pageant with beauty queens Angelia Ong and Jamie Harrell holding the title in 2015 and 2014, respectively.
Should Skarne take home the crown, she will be the first from Sweden to win Miss Earth.
