Omwakwe, 21, became qualified as her country’s representative to the Miss Earth contest, after she finished as one of the winners in the 2002 Miss Tourism World Kenya pageant.She participated in the second edition of Miss Earth beauty pageant, which was held in Quezon City, Philippines on October 29, 2002.Džejla Glavović of Bosnia-Herzegovina won the Miss Earth 2002 title and Omwakwe as the first runner-up.

Miss Earth is the first international beauty contest Omwakwe ever participated. After the pageant, she went to Canada for a vacation and to look for a school where she can take up a nursing degree.

On May 28, 2003, Carousel Productions, the organization that produces Miss Earth beauty pageant, officially dethroned Glavović "due to her failure to comply with the stipulations in her contract." First runner-up Omwakwe took over the position of Miss Earth 2002.[5][10] She was formally crowned as the new Miss Earth 2002 on August 7, 2003 at the Carousel Gardens in Mandaluyong City, Philippines.
In a press conference, she was asked on her reaction to being the new Miss Earth and she replied: "I was stunned and couldn’t believe it. But then I saw the congratulatory messages in my e-mail and I received calls from all over. That’s when I was convinced it wasn’t a hoax."
