NEW YORK – In New York and on national television Tuesday, a reigning Philippine beauty queen took to a popular American morning show to talk about Typhoon Yolanda’s devastation.

Miss World 2013 Megan Young appeared on the set of ABC’s “Good Morning America Live” to talk with the hosts about Typhoon Yolanda and the devastation it left—telling the hosts the effects of the storm had surprised many.

“Some people may have underestimated it,” Young said. “I think even some of us were like maybe, we’ve seen a storm before, it’s passed us, but never did we imagine that it would be as terrorizing.”
The 23-year old Virginia-born and Philippine-raised beauty queen spoke about relief efforts from the Philippines Red Cross, encouraging people who want to help that no amount is too small to give.

“You think maybe a dollar would be too little, or $5 would be too little,” she said. “Actually $5 can give a whole family water, rice, and supplies for a good period of time. That is a lot and means a lot to them.”
