For Megan Young, the GMA Pinoy TV-sponsored Fil Fest USA held in Norfolk, Virginia last October 14 was an opportunity to celebrate Filipino-American History Month with her fellow Filipino-Americans, as well as revisit the state where she was born.
Ahead of Fil Fest USA, Megan talked about taking up residence in the state known as the mother of presidents and statesmen via a live chat on the GMA Pinoy TV Facebook page. “I was actually born in Virginia -- not in Norfolk, but in Alexandria, Virginia… ‘yung parents ko dati nagwo-work sa Washington D.C. (which is near Alexandria), kaya doon kami nakatira. It feels good to be back,” said the Kapuso actress.
Inspired by this homecoming of sorts, Megan launched into a sweet performance of songs at the Fil Fest USA event, which was well-received by attendees. Owning the stage like a pro, Megan reached out to members of the audience who were visibly thrilled to be in the presence of the former Miss World.
“Kahit anong event na nagagawa namin for GMA Pinoy TV, I’m always super duper excited to meet members of Filipino communities,” said Megan in her Facebook live broadcast prior to the event. “I really want to be able to visit all our Kapuso Abroad all over the world,” added Megan, who has been featured in a number of GMA Pinoy TV events in the past, the most recent of which brought her to Kuwait in the Middle East.
Right after her onstage stint, Megan headed to the GMA Pinoy TV booth for a meet-and-greet with her fans. She was met with a queue of supporters who were all clamoring for a photo opportunity with the ‘Starstruck’ alumna.
With Fil Fest USA wrapped up, Megan is headed to Alexandria for a much-awaited reunion with her family and relatives, whom the actress hasn’t seen in a long while – a fitting reward for someone who was generous enough to spend time with her kababayans and remind them of pleasant memories of their home back in the Philippines.
