"Interview has always been a weakness of mine. For the years that I have competed, it always seemed like I was excelling in all phases of competition but stayed baseline for interview and lacked serious confidence in speaking publicly. I figured it was time to make a change and I read “Did I Really Say That? The Complete Pageant Interview Guide” by Charles Margolis but did not want to stop there. I went in for lessons and very soon after, I had won my local. Charles gave me the tools on how to speak with confidence, poise, and intelligence as well as making the interview personal to me. What he gave to me, helped me in all aspects of competing and I would not have been able to succeed without his help."
