Miss Earth 2012 Teresa Fajksova is setting her sights on educating her own people first when it comes to environmental issues.
Fajksova, who represents the Czech Republic, bested 79 other international delegates for the Miss Earth crown. She admits her native country has a long way to go in terms of environmental consciousness.
The beauty queen shares that she is surprised by the number of recycle bins in Manila, which they lack in Czech Republic. She is also pushing for the use of solar energy.
Fajksova hopes her reign can bring in the change her country needs when it comes to caring more for the environment.
