The Miss Scuba International pageant, with its mission “Saving Oceans through Beauty,” started in 2011 and is founded by Robert Lo who is a strong believer in sustainable development within the realms of the marine environment.
Lo hopes that through this pageant, it will enable more people to understand how fragile the oceans are and how to make a big difference by protecting it. Thus, the pageant’s focus highly revolves around marine and ocean conservation.
The closest the country ever got to bringing home the crown was last 2013, wherein Miss Scuba Philippines 2013 Paula Bernasor won 1st Runner-up coming in second to winner Jaime Lee Faulkner from United Kingdom.
This year, the country hopes highly to bring the crown home. Will Cindy Madduma make the Philippines proud? Follow her journey towards vying for the Miss Scuba International 2015 crown.
