“For personal reasons, namely the Faculty of Law study timetable, I am regret to inform that I will not be able to represent Romania at the Miss Earth 2012 pageant in the Philippines from November 3 to 25, because I could not be absent from school for so long,” Diana’s resignation read.

I sincerely congratulate all the winners and I would to say good luck to the person who will replace me as Miss Earth Romania 2012, ” said Diana Popistasu.
