Laura Marano holds onto to what’s left of her cool drink while arriving for her appearance on Extra at Universal CityWalk on Wednesday afternoon (September 7) in Universal City, Calif.
The 20-year-old “La La” singer is set to sit on the judging panel at this weekend’s Miss America 2017 pageant.
During a recent Q&A with Yahoo, Laura offered up the best advice to all the 51 contestants.
“Keep in mind, I haven’t been a part of pageants before, so I feel there are definitely things I’m going to be learning as well as being a judge,” she shared. “But the one thing I can speak about is talking about things you care about to people who may or may not be listening and how you get them to listen.”
Laura added, “Any advice I would give them is to be short, concise, and meaningful with anything you say. It’s very easy to ramble. It’s very easy to not make a clear point sometimes. The best thing is to know what you’re going to say and find a meaningful way of saying it.”
