MEGAN LYNNE YOUNG was named Miss World Philippines 2013 during the pageant coronation night on August 18, 2013.   She was crowned as Miss World 2013 in Bali, Indonesia, making her the first Filipina to win the title of Miss World since its creation in 1951.  During the preliminaries, she also won the "Top Model" competition, placed fourth in the "Multimedia Challenge" and fifth in the "Beach Beauty" contest. 

Megan  also received the Continental Queen of Beauty title as Miss World Asia 2013, the highest ranked contestant in the Asian region. 

As Miss World 2013, she will be based in England for her activities. She has so far travelled to France, the Philippines, United States, Haiti, and,  China.  She  is expected to visit 40 countries for charity work after her brief stay in the Philippines for the Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts.  Young came back to London and supported the relief drive of the daily newspaper The Sun for the benefit of the typhoon survivors in the Philippines. 

Miss World's Beauty with a Purpose organization decided to direct their fundraising activities for the victims of the typhoon Haiyan by going to different locations around the world.  Young went to U.S. cities, Newark, New York City and Los Angeles to hold fundraisers and appeared in the television program Good Morning America in ABC to appeal for donations.  She also visited Hong Kong and Indonesia before going back to her country to personally deliver the proceeds. 

Megan Young finally arrived in the Philippines in November 27, 2013.  In her second day in the country, she went to the areas heavily affected by the typhoon and distributed the relief together with the Philippine Red Cross.  She particularly visited the provinces of Leyte, Samar and Iloilo. 

Megan Young was born in Alexandria, Virginia to a Filipino mother and American father.  Her parents are Victoria (née Talde) and Calvin Young.  She moved to Olongapo City, Zambales, Philippines at age ten. She attended secondary education in Regional Science High School III in Subic Bay Freeport Zone from 2002 to 2005 before moving to Manila to pursue her acting career. She is currently taking AB Digital Filmmaking at the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, Manila.
