Yllana Marie Aduana captivated the whole world with her beauty, delicate features, and undying passion for the environment in the year 2023. That is when she was crowned Miss. Earth-Air. While she wrote history with her win of Miss Earth-Air, Aduana is so much beyond the crown, sash, and all that sass. 

Early Years

Yllana was born in Siniloan, Laguna, Philippines in 1998. Amidst the picturesque landscape of the Philippines, Aduana’s love for the environment too grew along with her. Years later, Yllana would reinforce her passion and dedication to a different kind of passion when she started studying at Centro Escolar University, where her skills stood their ground and she became a Medical Laboratory Scientist.

While her career soared high, Yllana knew her calling went beyond the laboratory. This is when pageantry came into her life and she participated in Miss Philippines Earth, 2021. Unfortunately, Yllana did not kiss the crown. But with relentless effort and a fire-like passion, Yllana took her chance again at Miss Philippines Earth, 2023. She gave a welcome kiss to the crown this time and this became her stepping stone to be crowned Miss Earth-Air in 2023. 

Truly, a Beauty with Brains!

The glitz and glam of the pageantry wasn’t the only attraction for Aduana. She decided to use the fame to advocate for things she felt deeply from her heart. Her passion stemmed from a genuine concern for everything living on this earth. Her passion drove her to community outreaches aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which advocated that human welfare and happiness were linked with environmental developments. 

Aduana had a deep understanding from the go that getting crowned Miss Earth-Air wasn’t just about planting a couple of trees. She understood that the genuine well-being of the earth and its environment would be what would take her forward in this journey of passion and perseverance. Her association with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals got her to understand the complex relationship between environmental issues and social development.
