Last night, a woman took home more than just a crown of Miss World 2013. She brought home with her the hope and dreams of her people. For the first time in her country’s history, a Filipina won the much coveted title.
Megan Young, showed the world what beauty with a purpose means. She let her inner beauty shine, gave her heart, shared her wishes and visions for building a better, kinder, more generous world that truly cares for others. She spoke genuinely, “I promise to be the best Ms. World ever.” Her words echoed straight into the hearts of millions who knew what it felt to live in hardship, always stricken with grief, oppression, calamities, poverty and political unrest. She became a glimmer of hope, a light to those around her, a reason to smile, to take pride in being true to one’s roots, culture, traditions and beliefs. She reminded us to never forget where you came from, to always look back with gratefulness all those people who helped us achieve our dreams. To give back and this time help others find their dreams.
To Megan, thank you for bringing pride and happiness to the Philippines. The night you were crowned, every Filipino scattered globally, felt that they too took the crown in their hearts. In behalf of all the Filipinos here in America, particularly Texas, congratulations. Yes, we believe that you will be the best Ms. World ever. Our thoughts and prayers to you and all those who strive to make a positive change and purpose in this world.
From the outside, the world is saturated with beautiful people but not everyone brings out that priceless inner beauty in them. Inner beauty that seeks to help, heal and rebuild the brokenness around them. Today, may we all seek and be inspired by that inner beauty within us so we can find courage and faith in creating a huge difference in our world.
