In today's episode, I want to share with you some advice from Ms Lu Parker, Miss USA 1994 about preparing for your pageant interview that I love.

In my pageant preparation, one of my goals was to constantly put myself in new situations where I could meet and interact with new people. The idea of this is to get more and more comfortable talking with ease to strangers in attempt to remove the pressure during pageant interview. As I prepared, I realized the more I had unique experiences, the more fun the interview process became.

Ms. Parker takes this to a whole new level! In this episode, I share her idea and use it to create a strategy you can implement to help you prepare for your pageant interview.

When you implement this 10-step strategy, you'll gain skills in leadership, flipping the power dynamic, and discover a flow for interview timing.

However, competition and exhaustion and the emotional rollercoaster of pageantry often brings out the worst in people. So, you'll have to actively prepare to be a good friend and earn a good friend in your pageant roommate.

I have 5 tips to help you make friends with your pageant roommate - and ensure she won't put nair in your shampoo. ;)
