Megan Young says her passion for gaming helps her cope with stress and stay connected with her friends.

Many people know Megan Young as an actress and model. In 2013, she also made history as the first Filipina to win the Miss World title. Some, however, might not be aware she also has a passion for gaming. Her love affair with video games started when she was very young. No pun intended.

Kidding aside, I remember clearly that our dad bought us an SNES. I couldn’t stop playing games like Q*bert and Galaga. I was really young, and I probably didn’t understand the mechanics of the game. But I was so drawn to the style of the games,” Young told Digital Life Asia.
