Miss World 2013 Megan Young

The Miss World 2013 Finals was held last 28th September 2013 in Bali, Indonesia. I intentionally waited a few days until my emotional excitement has died down a bit before writing about my experience in following Miss World Philippines Megan Young’s journey to the first ever Miss World title for the nation! 🙂 (Credits to Miss World Org & other owners for the photos on this post!)

Megan Young Miss World Philippines 2013

Since it’s the first time that the Philippines ever won the Miss World crown, Megan Young naturally makes history as far as Philippine Beauty Pageant records are concerned. Trivia : The Philippines scores a grand slam win in that it has at least one winner in all major international beauty pageants.

I’m a newbie pageant fan and although I don’t see myself supporting other pageants as fervently as I did with Megan Young, I’ve learned to develop an appreciation for pageant fans and contestants. Having experienced some behind the scenes moments during the competition made me realize that being a beauty pageant candidate isn’t as easy as it seems. These women need some inner strength to keep going amidst praises and criticisms alike. And fans who choose to support their candidates are just as formidable. They would work together and defend or attack whoever would malign their chosen candidates!

Unlike other pageant followers who don’t want their moment spoiled when the winner is announced, I followed it closely via social media… Facebook, Twitter, Live blogs, live streaming, etc. The best part is, I even got to enjoy some family bonding moments at the mall prior to coming home with the good news! >.<

I was shrieking so loudly and then jumping up and down when I found out that Megan Young won Miss World 2013! 😀 It’s a good thing my daughter was a bit distracted to notice or she would have taken some photos or even a video as evidence. LOL!

In the end, even though I’m just a supporter, I felt as much a winner as Miss World 2013 Megan Young. I signed up for her journey since she got shortlisted as a candidate for Miss World Philippines and followed it throughout her stay in Bali. I felt all the ups and downs of her journey. I got emotionally attached to the entire thing and at long last, I felt just as victorious! Now, it’s time to take a little break.

I’m still awaiting word on her homecoming as I would love to get a chance to see and meet Megan Young in person! ^_^ Now that’s one moment that would be truly memorable for me! That’s it for now… till next update! Happy 1st of October! Ta-tah!
