Megan Young Offers Possible Miss World 2013 Crown To Family And SupportersAn hour before the coronation night for the Miss World 2013, Miss World Philippines Megan Young said she dedicates "whatever happens" to her family and her Filipino supporters. She thanked those who supported her in the journey to reach the crown.
"Tonight is the night. I am so overwhelmed by the support I have been receiving. THANK YOU for joining me every step of the way. I’m happy I was able to inspire many people in this journey… Whatever happens, I hope I made a positive impact on your lives! Cheers! For the Philippines and for the WORLD!"
This was the caption of the third photo she posted on her official Facebook account. The first photo was that of her grandmother who wasn't able to be with the whole family in Bali, Indonesia to watch her granddaughter fight for the crown.
Her grandmother was wearing a shirt that has a cartoonized image of Megan wearing the coveted blue crown. No Filipina has placed in the Miss World pageant.
Megan said of her grandmother's image: "This is my grandmother, Lola Paula. Lola is the filipino word for grand mama (smiley) she may not be here in Bali to watch with the rest of the family, but she is ready to cheer all the way in the Philippines! I wanted to cry and hug her as soon as I saw this photo because I didn’t get to see her before I left for Indonesia. This is for you, Lola!"
The second photo she posted was that of her family--her parents, sister Lauren and brother Victor. She commended them for always supporting her dreams and for being there for her no matter what.
Although her sister and brother may be "crazy" at times, Megan said they have never failed in showing their support for her in whatever she does in her career. The photo was of them during a charity event in Zambales, where the Young family was based.
Megan then thanked her parents, who she hasn't spent that much time with. She added that she can always feel the support of her mother and father and that she wouldn't be where she is now if it wasn't for them.
The Miss World 2013 coronation night will be held at the Nusa Dua Convention Center in Bali, Indonesia on (Saturday). Megan, one of the top contenders, has already won the Top Model event and placed on the Beach Fashion event. Some said she’s an early frontrunner for the crown.
