Beauty Pageants three media heck they should learn.

Media today has become an integral part of our personality, there is no denying the fact that it plays a vital role in building your image and personality. Therefore, it becomes imperative on your part to learn to handle media and use it to the best of your advantage.

Here we are going to discuss a few very basic things that would help you in your real life as well.

  1. How to face the camera?

The fundamentals of how to look at your best and sound your best.

There are few things that you need to keep in mind while giving a television byte or interview. Please make sure not to get stiff. Practice keeping a smiling face. That would help you in relaxing and sending a message to the world that you have a pleasing personality. If you are sitting on a sofa, please make sure not to sit back as this would unnecessary show your double chin.

The posture as per the expert advice is to sit across or lean forward at approximately fifteen degrees. Look at the reporter. Never look up, you may look down occasionally. Maintain a calm and poised posture. Please do not rush to answer. They want to hear from you, that’s the reason you are here. So take your time, formulate your answers and then respond.

Whenever you are posed with a question, listen carefully. Remember, 85% of the communication skill is listening and only 15% is speaking. When you are 

Listening to someone have a slight smile. That you’ll look relaxed and comfortable. Use your 

Body language to your best advantage. I suggest you use your hands liberally. Let it free.



2. How to send mailers?

Direct mail is a powerful tool for getting your message out. The best way to convey your message is to be precise.Frame a message for the media interview. When sending out the mailer,keep in mind that it should not be more than ten words. Build your message to 30 seconds.

Brainstorm and get your point across,know your self and what message you want to send across to the world. Make your message to be interesting. What would interest the reporter? Keep what is of common interest to you,to your reporter and to your audience as well. Brainstorm and form the message. It is advisable to be prepared in advance. A short and simple message can create wonders for you,

3. How to face questions?

Because you’re applying for a job to be a public figure. To be a successful titleholder, you’ve got to be more than a pretty face. 

We all know the stereotypes of women who are attractive but self-obsessed, clueless, and vain. Society loves to pit beauty queens in this category. But most successful contestants are the opposite. You need leadership qualities and an awareness of current events. That starts with staying abreast of issues facing your community and your country. But maybe you don’t read the news. What then? You must start.

Many contestants barely follow news before starting to compete. Trying to absorb news stories without any existing context may be confusing. Try and understand the full story. Do lots of online research and ask friends and family to join you in discussions at mealtimes. Talking about current events in real life will allow you to get answers. Be a sponge and read voraciously. Follow news outlets, read magazine articles, and listen to anything that will enhance your understanding of current affairs. Observe what’s trending on social media the morning of your interview in case judges decide to ask you about it. The best time to become informed is long before the pageant. Start studying current events as early as you can. It’s the best base off for you to form your own opinions. 

Have an Opinion

Because judges are not looking for a robot reciting a script. They want someone with her perspective and beliefs.

Practice

Because practice is the way to improve at anything in life.

You can not expect to improve your interview game without practising. Create time to practice, in some way, every day during the six months before the competition. If you have a prep committee or coach, request as many mock interviews as possible.

To know more about the interview and communication skills, you can refer to my book, A BEGINNERS GUIDE TO BEAUTY PAGEANT.

Beauty Pageants three basic skin care advice.

EAT RIGHT

Nutrient-rich foods provide energy for women’s busy lives and help to reduce the risk of disease. A healthy eating plan regularly includes:

At least three-ounce equivalents of whole grains, such as whole-grain bread, whole-wheat cereal flakes, whole-wheat pasta, brown rice or oats.


Iron is one of the keys to good health and energy levels in women before menopause. Foods that provide iron include red meat, chicken, turkey, fish, kale, spinach, beans, lentils, and some fortified ready-to-eat cereals. Plant-based sources of iron are more easily absorbed by our body when eaten with vitamin C-rich foods.

There also are many foods that are fortified with folic acid, such as breakfast cereals, rice, and bread.  Eating a variety of foods is recommended to help meet nutrient needs, but a dietary supplement with folic acid also may be necessary.


KEEP HYDRATED

Every skin expert emphasizes the importance of hydration. “A lack of water means less radiance and more sag,” says Dr. Mona Gohara, a dermatologist in Connecticut. She suggests choosing products (cleansing, moisturizing, and anti-ageing that have hydrating formulas. And, of course, drink around eight glasses of water a day.

SLEEP WELL

It’s not just about getting eight hours a night. Skin will also benefit from regularly using clean silk pillowcases. “The material glides easily and prevents creasing and wrinkles,Sleep is as important as your diet. Sleep well for a healthy glowing skin.

For more details on how to keep your skin glowing,you can refer to my book.”A Beginners guide to Beauty Pageant.

Three things to do if you want to be next Miss World.

If you have a secret desire to be the next beauty queen. You must do these three things.

  1. Choose your platform wisely.

These days there are so many beauty pageants that we are hell-bent on choices. However, not every pageant is for you. You need to decide the pageant platform wisely. First, decide the platform which best suits your requirement. If you wish to promote yourself or looking for some scholarship for higher studies, do thorough research.

You must also cross-check the authenticity of the organizers. Look for people who are endorsing the event. their credentials and background. Check their website for past events. You may also like to contact the previous years contestants. This way you will be sure of the authenticity of the event. Better be wise earlier than sorry later.

2. Develop physical strength

Once you have decided on your platform, you need to work on your physical strength. if you haven’t taken up any physical activity till date, you need to start working out. Start with any of the physical activity you like. It could be running, gymming or swimming. The preliminary exercise must be to build stamina. This would prepare you for the difficult days ahead as you approach the competition. Endurance is the key to winning any competition. This will also help you get in the shape instantly.

3. Develop the mental strength.

Mental strength is as important as physical strength. You must be mentally strong to face the tough competition. Such competitions need self-motivation on a day to day basis. To develop mental strength you should take up some breathing exercises or Yoga. I would suggest Pranayama learn the art of breathing. Breathing helps in giving proper oxygen to your brain.which in turn, gives you the clarity of thought. I would also suggest you to start practising Visualization techniques as it helps in realizing your goals.

PERSONALITY

How do you define personality? Now you may be wondering why Do I start on such a note? The simple reason being my absenteeism due to consultation and training programs. OF late I have been training the  Miss world aspirants. Over my period of training them, I learnt a few things myself which are worth mentioning here.

Every Individual is unique:

This may sound simple yet when it comes to application, people often fail. We tend to judge them based on certain parameters that the few wise men may have devised as the yardstick to gauge any one’s personality. During my course of spending time with these beautiful, I realised this was a huge mistake on our part. It is imperative on our part as the mentor to bring it to their notice. It helps them understand their own strength and weaknesses.

Strength OF character:

The strength of character is far more superior than any other worldly parameter. All the courage, appreciation and will power can be gained through this single human attribute. It is our character which makes or mar our personality. The power to introspect and decide on our own free will gives us the clarity of thought to make a sound judgment. And as they say, life is about making the right moves at the right time.

Take it Easy:

Sometimes its best to take things lightly. Girls who burdened themselves with the fear of unknown were doomed for failure. On the other hands, the girls who took it lightly and lived the moment were more successful. They did not think much about the outcome. They gave their best and did not care about the results. It is imperative to feel the pressure, however, the pressure should not cripple your performance. The best advice is to enjoy the moment as you may not get this moment ever again in your life.

These may seem simple yet are very vital for our own existence.

(Note: If you agree or disagree with my viewpoint, I would love to hear from you. Even if you need assistance with your preparation, you can reach me on my mail id.)

REFLECTION

There comes a point in your friendship when someone becomes true reflecton of yourself. That’s the zenith,true melting point of different identities fused together.

A person is known by the company s/he keeps. If you want to know a person,know his friends. There may be several other adage which turns out to be churning the same thought. Have you ever wondered why ? Why so much of stress is laid on your company and your surroundings.

The first obvious answer is that we choose our friends. There’s always a common binding force between friends. We choose our company based on our own preferences. Unlike the blood line, here we have an option of choosing.

However, friendship is tested in times of need. It’s the second phase when we seal our bonding and vow an unwritten pledge of standing by each other in times of tests and turbulence. This is an important stepping stone.

The last phase is the most crucial of all and hardly few relations reach those stage. I call it the reflection stage. This is a stage in which your friends acts and behaves like you. S/he is the mirror image of the other person. Some bindings are so eternal that two people even think alike. Now that’s called friendship. Haven’t you dreamt of having such friends ?

Praiseworthy !!

People can kill you with their praise,things get worst when you are from a creative field. Sometimes your craft looses sheen and you bask in the glory of previous laurels. It takes lots of effort and patience to master the art of not getting affected by what others say.

People’s memory is short lived and they tend to remember things for a very short span. It’s our duty to stay focused. These things should not deter us from doing the right thing.

I had been sitting quietly and working on my story when the phone rang. It was midnight and I knew it must be Zoya as she works night shifts. It was a panic call and she was at the verge of crying. “I ain’t doing this job anymore, was her firm response. What is it now ? I wanted to know before reaching any response. It was her nagging boss. I’m working my a@& off and for what ? She walks away with all the credit. She is a typical hypocrite.” Words flew out of her mouth,.

I asked her to analyse the situation and calm down for a moment. You don’t throw away things you have built for years. It’s your reputation.

Office politics can be nasty at times. “Better you take a break and enjoy your food. ‘This bi@@@h will malign my reputation as well. ” Anyway,she was already on a break and in no mood to work. I listened patiently to all her grudges. as there was no quick fix for her situation.

Sometimes all we need is a patient hearing. That’s exactly what I was doing . Some people if they don’t see it for themselves can’t it see for you as well. Her boss is one such person. It took lot of coaxing and cajoling on my part to get Zoya to work. I am getting ready with a nice filter coffee for her when she returns.

Zoya is a straightforward and up right person that’s what gains her the love of her near and dear ones and envy of others.
