The first Filipina who wins the Miss World title in the pageant’s 63-year history and a gamer in Ragnarok M Eternal Love, Megan Young is the newest endorsers of Foodpanda.
But how exactly did Megan Young started playing video games when she’s not busy being a beauty queen?
“I’d like to say that I was a gamer first, so, actually, the better question is How did a gamer become a beauty queen?” Young says, laughing. “I started gaming when I was pretty young. My parents introduced me to educational games, then, eventually, it developed into a love for recreational games.”
She knows that some people may think she is not into gaming, or the only reason she’s playing is because of her husband. But Megan has been playing video games since 90’s, classic video games title like Mario Party, and Pokemon Snap on her Nintendo N64.
Since the lockdown started, Megan has been playing a lot of video games specifically Ragnarok M Eternal Love together with her husband and also a fellow gamer/foodpanda endorser, Mikael Daez.
“It’s actually surprising because at some point in our relationship, we both realized that we’re both into video games and that we’ve actually played these games even before we met each other,” she says. “I remember when we first heard about Ragnarok coming to mobile, I was like ‘I loved this game in high school!’ and Mikael could not believe it because it was also a game he played back then.”
Animal Crossing in Lockdown and FoodPanda
Since lockdown started, Megan also started spending time playing Animal Crossing on her Nintendo Switch. Since this game requires grinding and needs some refreshing foods, a recent favorite order of her from foodpanda is the steak burrito with cheese.
“Having foodpanda makes everything so much easier when you just want to have fun gaming,” Young says. “I think it’s always fun to have the food you love the most with you while gaming. It just makes the experience more exciting.”
Megan also added that she and her husband are happy to be part of the foodpanda family, especially with how food and gaming go hand-in-hand. Saying its the perfect combination to go with their personalities.
