Megan Young represented the Philippines at the Miss World 2013 on 28th September 2013 at Bali Nusa Dua International Convention Center, South Kuta, Bali, Indonesia and was crowned as the winner at the end of the event finale. She is the first Filipina to win the title of Miss World. During the preliminaries, she also won the "Top Model" competition, placed second in the "People's Champion," placed fourth in the "Multimedia Challenge" and fifth in the "Beach Beauty" contest.

Megan has recently shared that she is the Food Panda's newest ambassador with a post on her social media. Megan is very excited to take over her new role and has urged everyone to stay safe during such tough times. The diva along with her husband Mikael Daez is fond of playing video games online. She holds both her crown and controller close to her heart and has stated, “I’d like to say that I was a gamer first, so, actually, the better question is ‘How did a gamer become a beauty queen?”

Megan who has studied filmmaking at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde in 2011 and has mentioned that her parents introduced her to educational games, and then she eventually developed into a love for recreational games at a very young age. She explained that for her and other gamers like her, the presence of the country’s on-demand food delivery service, Food Panda, is a godsend, given the convenience of having meals and essentials delivered in an instant.

Explaining the entire scene, Megan stated that, “Having Food Panda makes everything so much easier when you just want to have fun gaming. I think it’s always fun to have the food you love the most with you while gaming. It just makes the experience more exciting.” Megan has been playing video games since lockdown especially with her husband and Food Panda endorser Mikael Daez and mentioned that she has never enjoyed the time at home like this.

Talking about her relationship with Mikael and the video game love, Megan mentioned, “It’s actually surprising because at some point in our relationship, we both realized that we’re both into video games and that we’ve actually played these games even before we met each other. I remember when we first heard about Ragnarok coming to mobile, I was like ‘I loved this game in high school!’ and Mikael could not believe it because it was also a game he played back then.”

Megan has recently celebrated her seven-year crown-anniversary as Miss World 2013 and had mentioned, “I still cannot believe this happened exactly 7 years ago. Whenever I look at photos from my year as Miss World, it still feels like a dream.” The couple who got married in January hosts a podcast show named, ‘Behind Relationship Goals’.
