MANILA, Aug 2011 (Mabuhay) — Actress Megan Young wants to be a beauty queen someday but only after she finishes college.

Young said she has already received many offers to join beauty contests.

“Maraming nag-aalok sa akin na sumali sa beauty concert pero sa ngayon gusto ko muna tapusin ang college ko. I want to get a degree first. Kapag natapos na ‘yon hopefully we’ll see kasi I might finish mga 23 or 24 na ako. Pwede pa naman 26, so we will never know,” Young said.

The actress said she always makes it a point to look beautiful and trim even if she has not yet joined any pageants.

“I’m always in the gym. I’m always getting myself ready kasi malay mo anytime naman pala bigla akong isabak so at least physically prepared ako, entally prepared ok na, kailangan na lang training,” Young said.

The actress said she will only join a beauty contest if her heart states that it is the right time.

“50-50 pa ngayon kasi gusto ko kapag sumali ako 100% yung puso ko nandoon. Ayaw ko namang half-hearted sasali ako because of course it’s a big responsibility dahil ire-represent ko ang country ko sakaling manalo ako in nationwide. I want to be fully prepared for that. Ayaw ko namang half-hearted lang because I’m representing the Philippines and that means a lot,” she said.

Currently, Young is preparing for her newest television series “Hiyas” with Zanjoe Marudo. (MNS)
