MANILA – After touring London, Miss World 2013 Megan Young has fulfilled another dream – to visit Cannes, France.

According to the official website of Miss World, Young is currently in Cannes to represent Miss World during the MIPCOM, one of the world’s leading conference and exhibition events.

“Ahead of her highly anticipated homecoming later this week, Miss World is currently in France, where she will be representing the Miss World brand and meeting with important figures from the entertainment industry during the MIPCOM event starting today,” according to organizers of Miss World.

This year’s MIPCOM, a four-day event until October 10, is expected to attract 13,000 participants from 100 countries.

Young, a film student at the De La Salle University-College of Saint Benilde, earlier said that she has always dreamed of going to Cannes, particularly to attend the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

“It would be an amazing experience for me to go there (Cannes),” she said in a video uploaded on Miss World’s YouTube page.

Young, the first Filipina winner of Miss World, is set to return to the Philippines on Thursday, October 10.
