Congrats K. Lee Graham, Paula Miles and the RPM Family!
Pageantology is 2-0 at Miss Teen USA! Last year, our client Cassidy Wolf took home the crown and this year another one of our clients was won! We are over the moon excited for Pageantology girl, the brilliant, K. Lee Graham, for winning the title of Miss Teen USA 2014 last night in the Bahamas! Not only did we judge K. Lee when she won the Miss SC Teen USA pageant last November, we also helped her prepare for Miss Teen USA as well.
As mentioned above, K. Lee is absolutely brilliant and has a heart of gold so our training with her focused on how she would relay what was most important/unique about her to the judges during the quick 3-4 minutes she had with them. Of course, we also went over on-stage questions extensively with her.
Interview and answering on-stage questions is a lot of pressure for anyone to handle, especially a young girl! We should know! Between Shandi and I, we've competed in our state pageants, Miss Teen USA, Miss USA, Miss America and Miss Universe so we've been in their shoes! Because it's a lot to handle, most girls usually want to focus on interview training and find our mock interviews super helpful. We love teaching runway, stage presence, and are passionate about health/nutrition as well, but there's something special about interview because it's the best opportunity for a pageant girl to show her personality and speak on why she's the perfect candidate for the job.
Between both of our experiences as Miss USA, the public relations training we've had and the 10 years of television hosting, we've created a great approach to interview competition that is proving to be great training! We launched Pageantology in 2013 and already our clients have won:
- Miss Teen USA 2013
- Miss MA USA 2014
- Miss NH USA 2014
- Miss NE USA 2014
- Miss Teen USA 2014
- ....and several others placed at Miss USA 2014, Miss Teen USA 2014, and other pageants!
We'd also like to send a huge congratulations to our other 2 clients who made the Miss Teen USA finals this year:
- Bailey Medieros, MA - top 15
- Bianca Viera, CA - top 5
To the left, is a slideshow of all our beautiful Pageantology clients who competed for the Miss Teen USA 2014 title!
Interview can really be an art form so we get to know each of our clients and help them zero in on what they truly want the judges to know about them. Many girls aren't really sure what that even is for them so we help them figure it out. We're all special and have unique things to say but the question is, how can you best relay your message to the judges?
With K. Lee it was no different. She listened, she did the homework we gave her, and she emerged victorious as our new Miss Teen USA! We're so proud of her. She worked hard and has so much to offer to the world so we're excited to see all that she'll do with her new title.
K. Lee also contributed her inspirational pageantry story to our blog last month so make sure you check that out if you missed it. And you can follow K. Lee on her own blog here and her year as Miss Teen USA 2014 here : )
Finally, if you'd like to train with us, be sure to sign up for one of our upcoming workshops in FL, SC, WV or CA this summer/fall! We're also available for private in-person or online sessions (this is how we trained K. Lee so it works pretty well). If you have any questions, just click on the "contact" above and send us a message. We're here to help.
Happy pageantry ladies!
Lots of love,
