Megan Young On Being A Peace Ambassador

The gorgeous Kapamilya actress proves that you can never be too young--or beautiful--to get serious about social responsibility.

There's more to Megan Young than meets the eye. Look past the tall, slender frame, gorgeous mestiza features, and the distinct fashion flair that has landed her in Preview magazine's list of Ten Best Dressed for 2012, and you'll see that this young actress has a strong social consciousness--which she aims to put to good use.

The statuesque star was glowing during the launch of the "I Am For Peace" campaign in Malacanan Palace last September 14, where she was named one of the National Peace Ambassadors alongside other local personalities like six-time Cosmo cover girl Anne Curtis, Gerald Anderson, Cosmo Centerfold Mikael Daez, and apl.de.ap of the Black Eyed Peas.

Can you describe your personal style?

I sleep with my makeup on (laughs). No, I try not to. I always have to wash my face before I sleep; that's very important. Then I moisturize.

What are the five things you never leave the house without?

I can't leave without my wallet, my phone, my glasses--because I'm blind when I drive, perfume, and mints.

What does a guy have to wear to catch your attention?

A barong (laughs). Kahit naka-jeans and t-shirt lang siya, at 'yung ugali niya.
