Ms. Megan Young shared about her journey to being crowned 2013 Miss World, and how the title has since placed her in a position to inspire young women around her.

Joining Miss World 5 years ago really took me out of my comfort zone and challenged me to be more confident. After being crowned, I realised I was in a position where I had the power to influence young women, and I wanted to do my part to encourage them to stand up for themselves. I used to just shrug off people who say insensitive or hurtful comments, but now call them out and tell them they’re wrong, and I encourage all women to not be afraid to do the same,” shared Young.

She also spoke about her own experience in breaking-free from society’s self-imposed standard expectation on how women should look like physically and emotionally. Her journey with Miss World in 2013 also helped her highlight this and ‘break‘ other people’s once low expectation of her. She proved that women can be “beautiful” by their own standards just by being who they are, and not necessarily by complying what society dictates them to be.
