To honor Megan Lynne Young, in her triumph in the recent 2013 Miss World Pageant, the Philippine Postal Corporation released a limited edition PhilPost stamp featuring her image during the crowning moment of said prestigious pageant held in Bali, Indonesia. Her full name was also featured in the stamp above the Miss World 2013 title.
According to postmaster general of PhilPost Maria Josefina De La Cruz, there are only 80,000 regular stamps that will be released which can be bought at P30 and P40 denominations. There are also 7000 souvenir sheets which cost P100 each. Both are printed with a gold embossed stamping technique.
Megan Lynne Young is the first Filipina to win the prestigious Miss World crown. She bested 126 candidates worldwide. She was the third Filipina that was featured in Philpost Stamp following 1969 Miss Universe Gloria Diaz, and Miss Universe 1973 Margie Moran.
Prior to joining the pageant Megan Young is an actress from ABS CBN, a TV host, a video jockey, a former Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2 housemate, and a Starstruck season 2 alumna (reality talent search of GMA7).
