“Megan is a very special Miss World,” said Miss World Events Director Steve Douglas who accompanied the FilAm beauty to the Consulate building on Fifth Avenue.
“Wherever we go we want to engage the Filipino community because that’s what Megan’s wish for the year,” he said. “She’s proud of her heritage and she really wants to use that in a positive way and unite people throughout the world.”
