"I am an experienced pageant judge, ​former titleholder, pageant enthusiast, ​and professional interviewer..."

...who has walked victoriously in your same ​platform shoes.

As a Top Interview Award Winner, I understand ​what is needed to successfully deliver the ​perfect interview and leave the judges ​convinced that you deserve the crown!

Don't Risk The Crown

Because of Pre-interview Jitters

or Over-Confidence

Any serious pageant contender knows that ​high interview scores are a must in order to ​stand a winning chance. Competitions are ​won in the interview room. Do the math.

Ideally, everything has to be perfect to ​become a titleholder -- your walk, your ​wardrobe, your hair and your makeup.

For many, the interview phase of competition ​is a source of great anxiety. You may have ​done some prep work on your own -- ​formulating opinions about current headlines ​and fine-tuning your platform. You may have ​even reviewed questions to prepare, but you ​are still nervous.

For others, the interview phase of competition ​is your sweet spot, and you need ​opportunities to test yourself.

Whether you are a fearful candidate or one ​who is self-assured, how do you deliver the ​perfect responses to unexpected questions -- ​all while appearing calm, confident and ​prepared to wear the crown?

The answer is Practice, Practice, Practice! ​Practice makes you Prepared. Practice makes ​you Poised. Practice Makes Perfect.

I Help You Practice

Mock with Me helps smart, ambitious aspiring candidates achieve winning confidence through online mock interview practice sessions that are easy to schedule and easy on the wallet.

My mission is to provide candidates, pageant coaches, and local/state pageant directors with invaluable insider insight, heart-felt support, game-changing feedback and worthwhile interview practice opportunities to boost confidence and maximize your potential to win the crown.

Aspiring Queens who Mock ​with Me get the benefit of…

  1. Practice

Mastering any task takes repetition, and repetition must be done at the level you wish to perform. By receiving questions from a seasoned judge and licensed attorney, you are exposing yourself to the caliber of questioning you're likely to receive on competition day.

2. Expert Feedback

While practice is essential, improvement ​cannot come without feedback. You will ​receive an immediate assessment of your ​interview performance provided by someone ​who has judged at both the local and state ​level for twenty-five years.

Based on your individual needs, two options ​are available for purchase, depending on ​how much practice is desired to master your ​interview skills.



3. Interview Recordings to Measure Your Growth

You have the option to purchase video recordings of your individual interviews to review on your own and/or to share with your pageant directors or prep team.

This invaluable tool allows you to take note of your measureable improvements and track your progress.

4. A Boost of Confidence

When you've worked effectively and prepared ​as much as possible, confidence is the result.

Make Sure You are Ready. Then Stay Ready.

"Mweni truly impacted my

journey to Miss America."

Mweni was one of the judges the ​year I won Miss Indiana, and ​after winning we connected. She ​truly impacted my journey to ​Miss America.

She is beautifully versed when it ​pertains to pageantry, which ​enabled me to hit the Miss ​America stage with great ​confidence.

She is so caring, and her ​knowledge will take you to the ​next level.

"Mweni is the first person I call to help with interview prep."

When preparing for an ​upcoming competition, Mweni is ​the first person I call to help ​with interview prep.

She is not only willing to ​contribute her time and effort, ​but she does so in a graceful ​and helpful way.

She is always honest, and it's so ​nice to have someone who is ​willing to tell you their honest ​opinion and offer suggestions ​on how to improve and help you ​grow.

She has thoughtful questions, intentional ​conversations, and is such a smart and kind person. ​She will be someone who you put on speed dial when ​it comes to helping you feel your best and prepared ​in the interview room.

Thank You, Mweni!!

"Doing mocks with Mweni really helped me prepare for

Miss Indiana’s Outstanding Teen."

Doing mocks with Mweni really ​helped me prepare for Miss Indiana’s ​Outstanding Teen.

Mweni was absolutely great and ​made me feel very comfortable while ​interviewing.

She gave great feedback that helped ​me improve my interview.

"As a former pageant coach and as a local ​director of Miss America competitions, I have ​personally had her judge for me and assist with ​preparing my titleholders. "

Pageantry Experts Agree

I have had the pleasure of knowing Mweni Ekpo ​for over 25 years.

When I first met her, she was a student at Indiana ​University Law School in Bloomington, Indiana.

She was competing for the title of Miss Delaware ​County/Miss Hoosier Heartland of which I was the ​executive director.

After first meeting her, I was not surprised when ​she won the title of Miss Delaware County.

Mweni was a dream to have as a titleholder. ​Instead of returning to Mississippi, after her ​Indiana University classes concluded that spring, ​she decided to stay in Indiana, so she lived with ​us, and other friends, while preparing. And ​prepare she did.

Mweni placed 4th runner up. I have always ​believed if Mweni had not have aged out that year ​she would have become Miss Indiana.

Debra Gossett

Executive Director

Miss Central Indiana ​Scholarship ​Competition, Inc.

Even though Mweni moved from Indiana, we have stayed friends, and I refer to her ​as a ‘bonus’ daughter.

Through the years, I have witnessed first-hand her dedication and work ethic while ​she prepares for any dream or goal she chooses to accomplish.

Her determination, attention to detail, and pursuit of excellence are what make ​her so outstanding.

As a former pageant coach and as a local director of Miss America competitions, I ​have personally had her judge for me and assist with preparing my titleholders.

The young ladies love her, her critiques and her attention to every detail. Her ​criticism comes from a kind and loving place, wanting each young lady to be their ​best authentic self.

Mweni has always believed in helping young women develop their talents and ​character. As a seasoned pageant judge, she understands all the aspects of the ​competition.

Consequently, as a consultant or coach she is a valuable resource for young ​women wanting to hone their interview skills.

It is with great pride that I can recommend Mweni Ekpo to assist persons of all ​ages, who are interested in improving their interpersonal or interview skills; as a ​pageant enthusiast or even seeking a job.

More About My Pageant Experience

Reared in Mississippi, I have been active in ​pageantry since the age of 17, when I earned the ​title of Hinds County Junior Miss and went on to ​place as 3rd Runner-Up out of 42 girls in the ​Mississippi Junior Miss Program.

I am a cum laude graduate of ​Tougaloo College, where I ​received a Bachelor of Arts degree ​in English and Music and ​participated in numerous ​activities, including student ​government and the College ​concert choir.

Later, I graduated from Indiana ​University School of Law-​Bloomington.

While in law school, I earned the title of Miss Delaware ​County and placed as 4th Runner-Up in the Miss ​Indiana Scholarship Program.

Over the last twenty-five years since then, I have gone on to judge Miss America local preliminary competitions in Indiana, Ohio, Florida, and my current home state of Texas. I am also an experienced judge at the state level.

Through my work in higher education, I've spent my career as a law school admissions dean and graduate programs recruitment manager, helping people reach their professional dreams.

In my spare time, I enjoy spreading joy to others as a Zumba Fitness and Silver Sneakers instructor.

Here' s How It Began...

When I competed in my first pageant during my senior year ​of high school, my mother was my main resource and ​advisor.

She dressed me in what she thought was best and provided ​feedback regarding my talent.

I don't recall doing any special preparation for the interview ​phase, but somehow I ended up winning the whole ​competition.

Soon after, we realized that there was so much to be gained ​by consulting with and receiving advice from knowledgeable ​experts.

Many years later, as a veteran judge, I would often provide ​mock interview assistance to my friends who were local ​pageant directors.

In this process, I recognized how valuable practice was to ​their candidates' growth and performance.

Noticing a lack of worthwhile interview PRACTICE ​opportunities available to candidates, I created Mock ​With Me to provide the critical experience and feedback ​needed for candidates to succeed at the highest level.

"Mweni brings her broad knowledge as a ​former contestant, a lawyer and educator ​to the panel."

I had the distinct honor of judging the 2019 ​Miss Indiana Pageant with Mweni Ekpo.

I've been judging state pageants since 1994 ​and can state with conviction that Mweni is ​one of the most dedicated judges I've met ​during that time.

She is a very serious judge who challenges ​the contestants with strong questions and ​follow-up questions.

Mweni brings her broad knowledge as a ​former contestant, a lawyer and educator to ​the panel.

I have since recommended Mweni for ​judging openings nationwide. She is in ​demand as a judge.

"Mweni is outstanding during the ​interview process in asking both initial ​and follow-up questions..."

... to gain insight into a ​contestant's knowledge ​and depth of topics.

Mweni works to make sure ​each contestant has the ​opportunity to express ​herself on a variety of ​topics.

She has the skill set to ​help contestants prepare ​for the interview portion ​of competition.
