Ms. World 2013 is Miss Philippines!

My aunt whose currently in Papua New Guinea sent me a message in Whatsapp last night. She's watching Miss World 2013 while I'm busy posting in my Facebook account about UST team facing Dela Salle team in UAAP Basektball Finals.

Since my father and two brothers are fixated in the television last night, I can't watch the pageant proper. Luckily (or so I think) there's a live streaming available in Miss World website which I launched in my browser. Unfortunately it didn't load for 5 minutes so I closed the website and decided to hit the sack and check for news the following morning.

Surprise of surprises! Or is it expected? I got a lot of feeds from my Facebook extending congratulatory messages to Megan Young for winning the most coveted Miss World title. Prior to the coronation night, she's already making a buzz by winning the Top Model competition then she came in 5th place for the Beach Fashion tilt and came in 4th place for the Multimedia Contest. Each win in the corresponding challenges gave each candidate extra points to secure a spot in Miss World Top 10.

She definitely made her mark on the beauty pageant history of our country since she's the very first Filipina to win the title. Wow! Now I'm curious of her answer to the judge's question. This is a critical point as it could either make or break a candidate's chances of winning.

I was not disappointed with her answer when they asked “Why should you be Miss World?”. 

MeganYoung answered, “I treasure a core value of humanity and that guides people why they act the way they do. I will use this to show other people how they can understand each other … as one, we can help society.”

Bravo! I can't think of a better answer for that question myself. 

You made us all proud! Congratulations and we hold on to your promise of being the best Miss World ever. By the way, I love the color of your crown!
