“…helped me understand the process.”

“I was so nervous before my first pageant and I had no idea what to expect! Lauren helped me understand the interview process and how to prepare for a variety of questions. We made sure I knew what I thought about issues I read about in the news instead of just memorizing an answer. It helped me feel confident that the judges couldn’t ask me anything I wouldn’t know!”

Public speaking doesn’t come naturally to me and recently I have been in front of several large groups of people pitching a new business idea. After the first one, I knew I could do better. Lauren helped me see little things I didn’t even know I was doing! I feel so much more confident in my ability to convey my message and convince others to believe in my idea with me.
