In the interview round, she persuaded judges with her answers about the changes to society and the environment in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The beauty queen said that people’s mental health problems must be well-taken care of, while harmful habits that cause damage to the environment must be addressed. The Vietnamese beauty urged everyone to work together to protect the environment.

I nearly cried before the final because of the high pressure,” said Ha. “But I was confident and strongly believed in myself. I was brave to overcome all challenges and even my limit.

This prestigious title will push me to work my best every day. This will also be a milestone in my life, opening up many opportunities to connect with international friends. Above all, it will be a strong support and motivation for me in my work, especially those concerned about environmental protection,” she said.

Ha, born in 2004 in the southern province of Ben Tre, was a high school student in HCM City. She was crowned Miss Eco Viet Nam 2022 last June.
