Amidst controversies and petitions for her disqualification, ABS-CBN’s sweetheart, Megan Young, stood firm and was hailed as Miss World 2013 on September 28 in Bali, Indonesia.

Young bested 127 candidates from all over the world, being the first Filipina to take home the Miss World title.

In the pageant’s question and answer portion, the candidates were given 30 seconds to answer the judges’ question. Young stood out when she said, “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.”

Marine Lorpheline of France and Carranzar Naa Okailey Shooter of Ghana took the second and third places, respectively.

Young will head straight to London, which will be her residence during her reign, and decided to start extending a helping to the Filipino flood victims.
