Newly crowned Miss World 2013 Megan Young flew to London last Sunday to attend a charity gala event; her first public appearance as the new Miss World.
She will be back in the Philippines in eight days where a grand homecoming event is currently being planned.
Prior to leaving for London, our first Filipina Miss World posted this message at the official Facebook page of Miss World-Philippines:
“Seems like only yesterday that I was flying out to Bali, Indonesia to represent the Philippines and show the world what I had. And now, at the foot of my bed, I see the Miss World sash. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine to be in this position. Never did I think of myself to be worthy of such an honor. But the paths that I’ve chosen have proven me wrong
This year will be an amazing one. I can already feel the good vibes and positive energy and I can’t wait to start planning for things so that you can witness my journey as well.
I don’t know where I would be without the people who have come and gone in my life, and the people that have come and stayed as well. Every single moment that I had with them, whether it was just a simple hello or a big thing that happened in my life, the way I act and think is all because of these people and life lessons.
Thank you for the happiness, thank you for the tears, thank you for the heart to heart talks, thank you for the heartbreak, thank you for the hugs, thank you for being mean to me, thank you for understanding, thank you for misunderstanding, thank you for caring, thank you for not giving a damn, thank you for the love and affection. Thank you, thank you thank you.
This isn’t only for the people close to my heart. This is also for the people who have witnessed my journey and became a part of it through support. Thank you. Maraming salamat sa mga Pilipino na sumuporta. Mahal na mahal ko kayo. Sana maging inspirasyon ako sa inyo. Samahan niyo ako sa aking lakbay bilang bagong Miss World 2013.
This isn’t the end of the journey. It is only the beginning.“
