MANILA -- During the question and answer portion, all the candidates were asked why they wanted to be crowned Miss World Philippines 2013.

This was the question frequently asked to Miss World Philippines Megan Young before the pageant, who is already an established actress herself.

On the pageant's grand coronation night held at the Solaire Resort and Casino in Pasay City on Sunday night, Young said being Miss World is all about being "selfless," a virtue which, she said, she has already committed herself to.

"If I become Miss World Philippines, I would pour my heart and my soul into helping others, which is what Miss World is [all about]: beauty and giving," Young told hosts Carla Abellana and KC Montero.

On the lighter side, candidates also answered video questions sent by people from all over the world.

A certain Ashra from Hong Kong asked Young what her hobbies are.

"Well, I know I may not look like it, but I'm a really avid video gamer. I love playing games. I'm an online gamer. I'm a beauty queen but I love my tech stuff," Young answered.
