At the age of 22 and 18, siblings Megan and Lauren Young prove that they are far from being ordinary as they each purchased a condo unit in a posh condominium in Manila. The sisters only live three doors away from each other.
Lauren, the younger of the two said that she didn’t expect to be this independent at such an early age, “Sometimes I think that my childhood was robbed from me. When I began to support myself I was 17 years old and was like, ‘I shouldn’t be paying my own bills!’”
In the end the sisters realize that they’re lucky for finding independence at an early age. It also doesn’t mean that they don’t have time for friends and family, Megan said.
“I think it’s all about time management. Even though we’re busy, we make sure that we balance our time so it’s not all about working. We know how to have fun too,” she added.

MAGKAPATID NA MEGAN AT LAUREN YOUNG, NAKATIRA SA MAGKAHIWALAY NA CONDO
Sino ang mag-aakala na sa edad na 22 at 18 taon, nakapagpundar na ang magkapatid na Megan at Lauren Young ng sarili nilang tahanan? Tig-isang condo unit at magkapit bahay pa sa isang magarbong condominium sa Maynila.
Ani ni Lauren na mas bata sa dalawa, hindi niya inaasahan na sa kanyang edad ay siya na ang bumubuhay sa sarili, “Minsan naisip ko, teenager pa lang ako, dapat nagpapakasaya ako sa mga party, gumi-gimik kasama ang barkada at parelax-relax lang, pero nagtatrabaho na ako para magbayad ng bills at tuition fees ko,” ani ng dalaga.
Pero hindi raw ibig sabihin noon ay nawawalan na ang magkapatid ng panahon na makasama ang pamilya o pumasyal kasama ang mga kaibigan.
“Sa tingin ko nasa time management lang ‘yan eh,” ani Megan. “Kahit na medyo mas busy kami dahil sa trabaho kumpara sa mga ka-edad namin, masaya kami na independent kami at nakakapagpundar na,” dagdag pa ng aktres.
