ALEJANDRA GONZALES
MISS USA 1ST RUNNER UP

I never had imagined that I would be going to Miss USA. After several attempts, I realized that I wasn’t the only one that was being tested in determination. I had seen the beautiful Crystle Stewart compete and knew of her story as well. Her story gave me hope and I NEVER in a million years would have thought that she would be the final puzzle piece to my Miss USA preparation. I went through such a beautiful and emotional transformation the day of my MISS Academy Mock Pageant. It was what sealed the deal and sent me well off to Reno, NV. The amount of detail that she puts into preparing women to be the best they can be is truly so inspiring!

MISS TEXAS TEEN USA 2019

To put it simply, the MISS Academy changed my life. As someone extremely new and inexperienced in pageantry, the direction and training provided by Ms. Crystle and the instructors whipped me into shape in little to no time. From learning how to walk in heels to gaining lifelong communication skills, the MISS Academy instilled vital capabilities in me that I would use then as a titleholder and forever as a woman. I never thought I’d place in a pageant, let alone make history as the first African American Miss Texas Teen USA. Nevertheless, Ms. Crystle and the MISS Academy team believed that I could and would accomplish both. I am eternally grateful for how they empowered and supported me continuously throughout my journey!

Working with Crystle and the MISS Academy was nothing short of fabulous. Although Crystle and the team train many young women from across the country, they always make it a point to focus all their energy strictly on you during your training sessions. Her team of highly regarded professionals give you all the tools you need to feel and look absolutely beautiful both on and off the stage. Crystle may be known as Miss USA 2008 as well as a model and actress however, she makes each woman feel empowered and worthy of chasing their wildest dreams.

MISS HOUSTON USA 2018

There’s so much to brag about when it comes to the MISS ACADEMY! As someone who was new to pageants, Crystle and her team prepared me in more ways than I can even imagine. I came to the Academy with no pageant experience at all, and ended up winning my very first pageant as Miss Houston 2018. If you want to work with the best, look no further MISS ACADEMY will prepare you in more ways that you can even describe!

MISS FRIENDSWOOD TEEN USA 2019

Working with Mrs. Crystle and her team of experts at the MISS Academy has been a positive learning experience in my pageant preparation. They have mentored me not only for pageants, but also for skills that will help me in my every day personal life. They have taught me how to live a healthy lifestyle, carry myself with poise and grace on stage, and give me confidence in the all-important interview. They have gone above and beyond to make me feel prepared, loved, and welcome in the academy. I’d like to personally thank everyone for giving me the support I need to feel like a true beauty queen.

MISS HOUSTON TEEN USA 2019

During my time training at the MISS Academy, I found not only myself but kind, caring, and knowledgeable mentors. Under their guidance, my transition into the world of pageantry was a breeze. During my time training I learned to be confident, collected, and successful in all aspects of my life- on stage and off. I went from a contestant to a confident and sociable titleholder in a matter of a few short months. I could not be more grateful for Crystle Stewart and her team. I now refer to the MISS Academy as my second home, and I would not be where I am today without them!

Joining MISS Academy has been a wonderful experience. I have learned so much about public speaking, stage presence, building confidence and fitness by working with their amazing team of experts. All my trainers guide me in becoming the best version of myself by motivating and challenging me. I have become more confident since starting my MISS Academy training and I thank them for helping me become the woman I am today. For anyone considering joining MISS Academy, DO IT you will not regret it. The pathway to your dreams starts here!

RACHEL HORNBUCKLE
MISS DALLAS COUNTY USA 2019

I’ve competed for the title of Miss Texas USA 3 years in a row, and even though I felt I had a good chance of winning my first two competitions, I knew I needed something to push me over the hump from simply making top 15, and instead landing a top 5 spot and hopefully winning my third and final year. That’s when I met Crystle, and I instantly knew that training at MISS Academy was exactly what I needed to do that. It’s also not everyday you get to train with your SHERO, a former Miss Texas USA/Miss USA, and her amazing team of coaches who are invested in your dream.

I trained with MISS Academy for about 5 months, commuting from Dallas, TX, and I have absolutely no regrets about it because it was the best investment I’d ever made in my life: the coaches believed in me and prepared me for any and everything, Crystle made sure that I was prepared physically, mentally, and emotionally, and when it was all said and done I truly believe I was Miss USA, and possibly even Miss Universe, ready when I walked on that stage for my final competition. Crystle and her team at MISS Academy truly changed my life and taught me to believe in myself and my dreams far beyond just pageantry, which is priceless.

Being Miss Houston USA has been the greatest honor and such a beautiful part of my life journey. Training with Crystle Stewart and the MISS Academy has been a special privilege. Crystle and her team helped me become the best version of myself, and equipped me to reach higher and greater levels on and off stage. What I have learned through Crystle’s guidance has helped empower me to take on the next chapter of my life with boldness, grace, and confidence.

Thank you MISS Academy for helping me maximize my potential both in competitions and in life. This is truly a unique and special place that provides all the tools needed for success in interview, walking, wardrobe, and so much more. The combination of individual and group training provides an opportunity for self-accomplishment while simultaneously fostering a sisterhood with other contestants. As someone who struggled with self-esteem, I especially appreciate MISS Academy’s ability to help each and every girl gain confidence.
