MANILA, Philippines – Recenly crowned Miss World of 2013 Megan Young returns to Manila on October 11, ABS-CBN reports.

Cory Quirino, director of Miss World Philippines has confirmed the news. “Parating na siya. Darating siya Thursday,” she said.

The 23-year-old actress and model, who has fulfilled her dream to take part and win in an international beauty contest, is the first Filipino to win the coveted crown.

Upon her return to Metro Manila, she is expected to be welcomed with a parade around the metropolis, in the historic tradition accorded to Gemma Cruz (for winning the Miss International title in 1964) and Gloria Diaz (for winning the Miss Universe title in 1969), among other past Filipina winners in international contests.

Megan’s arrival will thus be another moment in the history, pop culture, and social life of Manila. –
