After a seven-year hiatus, Finland is returning to Miss Earth.

Emilia Lepomaki has been appointed as Finland’s representative to the next edition of the Miss Earth competition. The 21-year-old stunner from Vantaa was a contestant in Miss Suomi 2018 where she lost 12 pounds prior to participating.

She was supposed to compete at the 2020 Miss Eco International in Egypt but the contest was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Things really happen for a reason. Now I have a new opportunity to represent Finland in 2020,” Lepomaki posted on Instagram.

Finland last competed in Miss Earth in 2012. It currently ranks 10th in Missosology’s Big5 ranking. Missosology.Org; Photos from Miss Earth Finland Instagram page
