Megan Young - Miss World 2013

Out of 127 candidates from all over the globe, Megan Lynne Young was crowned Miss World 2013. 2nd placer is Marine Lorpheline of France and the 3rd placer is Carranzar Naa Okailey Shooter of Ghana. The coronation was held Saturday, Sept 28, in Bali, Indonesia.

Young, who placed first among the top 10 semifinalists also coveted the Top Model challenge and placed 5th in the Beach Fashion pre-pageant challenge.

The 23-year-old actress, model, host made history as the first-ever Filipino winner of the title since the Philippines' debut in the pageant in 1966.

In the question and answer portion where the candidates were given 30 seconds to tell the judges why they deserve the crown, Young expressed her belief in a "core value of humanity" which guides people's actions. She hopes to use this to show others how they may contribute to society.

Well, with what Megan said in the pageant, I hope and pray that the power hungry-greedy-politicians in our country will one day grow conscience and follow the belief of this Ms. World.

Megan's proud Mom.
When the host asked Megan's Mom about what she tells her daughter, she said, "I always tell her to be kind."

If the whole Philippines is happy and proud for Megan, meron pa bang mas liligaya pa sa kanyang ina?

Sa gitna ng mga kaguluhang nangyayari sa ating bansa, simbolo ka na may pag-asa pa ang bayan...You made us proud, Megan!

(Photos are not that clear because I'm seated at the back. No, not inside Bali stadium where Ms. World was held, I was just seated at the far end, meaning sa pinaka likod ng mga anak ko. Photos are taken while watching at the delayed telecast in GMA 7)

Thank you for the joyful comments!
