Megan Young put the Philippines on the map when she became the first Filipina to win Miss World in 2013. 

Fast forward to 2022, Megan took to Instagram and shared a video of her moments from the competition. She wrote, "As a young girl 9 years ago. Malapit na maging isang dekada. This moment still feels like a dream!"

In a later Instagram post, Megan also shared a ~glimpse~ of her photos as a young girl which also included a photo from her early pageant years. Megan said the photos were shot when she was between 10 and 12 years old and shared, "Hello from Baby Boneezy. Ang nickname pa sa akin ng nanay ko ay Ate Bulate kasi para daw ako may bulate sa tiyan sa sobrang payat ko hahahuhu."

Megan previously spoke about what scared her the most when she joined the pageant world. Megan, who was 22 at the time, already had a career as a host and actress. Before deciding to join Binibining Pilipinas, Megan said, "My work was on the line. I knew that I could not work if I was doing this pageant, which meant that I would not have income, which meant that I could not pay for anything...People were saying, 'Kung talo ka dito, wala ka nang babalikan.'" But Megan's then-boyfriend and now-husband Mikael Daez encouraged her to go for it–and she eventually ended up winning and becoming the only Filipina to have won Miss World.
