We bedazzled our guest seat into a throne fitting for the reigning Miss New York Earth as she shared her experience competing in a pageant celebrating our environment. How do you compete without knowing your competitors? We learn what it is like navigating the covid-19 reality to compete virtually. Reliving the final experience, she ripped the runway that was her living in her record breaking (literally), upcycled, yet still chic evening gown. Skylee’s environment ambition extends beyond pageantry and includes many exciting initiatives such as her #ThinkUp – Turn Trash into Treasure project, Think Global Act Local a global campaign to create country flags from recycled materials and numerous environment awareness building activities.
