One of the best ways to get interviewed is to create your own topic and message. If you're not sure what you would talk about or want to comment on, think about what interest you the most, about your platform, about pageants, and about your community. Here are a few tips to get you started.
What do you feel comfortable commenting on? This is an easy one, think about what you're passionate about, what you like to talk about the most. And what do you get questioned on the most. So for example, if your platform is compassion for animals, this is a great topic that is covered periodically in the media. Write down the top 5 things about that topic that you would share with others. Also write down the top five things that you get asked the most about that topic or about that platform. Once you get started this will give you sample questions that you can give the host of a show to ask you during an interview. You also want to get very skilled at answering these questions as well. So make sure you practice.
What's going on in your community that is of interest to you? Always make sure you're staying abreast of what's going on in your community, and your state. These are opportunities for you to get interviewed if they have anything to do with your platform, pageant or general interest. Subscribe to your local newspaper, a few magazines, this will also help you in the interview portion of competing in pageants. You must stay abreast of current events. If you see a story in the local newspaper that covers something about your platform for example cancer research, you can always reach out to the person who wrote the article for comment. This could also lead to a separate interview which is great media exposure for you.
