This year, Thailand has given extremely mediocre performance in all the beauty pageants but it is expected that Punika will break the dry spell and win the Miss Earth 2013 compeition. If the 21 -year-old Prachuap Khiri born beauty does win, then she will be the first one to bring Miss Earth crown to Thailand.

For last five years, Thailand representatives have made it to the semi-final round of Miss Earth but none have reached the finals. However, charming and beautiful Punika could reach this year’s Miss Earth final round,

What Punika’s has on her side for a win is her interest in environmental advocacy. Miss Earth Pageant promotes environmental awareness and the title holder dedicates her one year to promote specific projects and addresses the pressing concerns regarding environment.

Punika’s experience as an environmental advocate could really impress the judges and give her an added edge over other contestants.

Punika will compete for the Miss Earth crown on Dec 7, at the Versailles Palace in Alabang, Muntinlupa City, Philippines. Last year’s title holder Tereza Fajksová from Czech Republic will crown the winner at the end of the evening.
