MANILA (Mabuhay) – The Senate on Monday commended beauty queen and actress Megan Young for winning the Miss World 2013 title.
Young attended the Senate session on Monday afternoon wearing a sparkling white terno and her blue crown to receive the commendation.
In sponsoring Senate Resolution 272, Senator Grace Poe praised Young for showing Filipina simplicity to the world.
“Tunay nga bilang isang Pilipina, ang pinakamaningning sa kanya [Young] ang pagiging simple ngunit nagmamarkang pagka-Pilipina,” Poe said during the session.
After Poe’s speech, Young ascended the Senate rostrum to receive her commendation and to have a photo opportunity with senators.
Last September 28, Young won the first ever Miss World crown for the Philippines, besting 126 candidates from all over the globe. (MNS)
