Faith provides a fantastic “whole package” coaching experience. She has coached countless winners in numerous systems (NAM, Miss USA, Miss America, Perfect, and more!) and has an impressive knowledge of what a contestant needs in each system to be a winner! She doesn't just coach a contestant to win once, she coaches them to win every time and perform to the very best of their ability in every area of competition. Her honesty, friendliness, passion, and excitement make her the best of the best, and she will give you the shirt off of her back (literally!) to make sure you are going to perform your best. Highly recommend to beginners or seasoned competitors. You'll learn something new every session! Not only is Faith a coach, she is a true friend for life.

Look no further for a pageant coach — Faith Schway is the very best in the business. Faith has dedicated her entire career to helping girls and women build the confidence and master the skills necessary for achieving their personal dreams. Faith is a life-changer and a world-changer! She coaches her clients to win and her results are in the hundreds of winners she has coached throughout the years. The beauty of working with Faith is that she values and respects the most novice clients as much as her most seasoned, winning clients. A few of the many adjectives that describe Faith are kind, respectful, caring, honest, patient, loving, sweet, funny, enthusiastic, dedicated, meticulous, detail-oriented, hardworking, full of integrity and morally upright. You will love her and trust her and feel like you have known her your entire life. You will not be disappointed. As a pageant mom, I have watched her coach my daughter over the years and seen the results. You are in for a transformational experience like no other. We love Faith like a family member, and you will, too. You gotta have Faith!

I met Faith when I was about 17 years old. She coached me into winning Miss Teen Minnesota USA the first time I competed. She will not only help you win but she will also change your life for the better. After knowing Faith for the past 5 years, I can honestly say that she is one of the kindest and hardest working people I’ve ever met. I truly don’t think I would be the woman I am today without her support and influence.

Faith Schway is not only a fabulous (inside and out) human being, but she also is so caring for everyone. Faith ensures that I'm prepared for everything that is thrown my way, all the way from wardrobe and paperwork to overall presentation and evening gown. She also cares about me as a person, she makes it a point to know about her client and personalize everything so you are still you while competing, she even attended one of my dance competitions. I have been working with Faith since I was 5 years old and started her modeling and self improvement class. Ever since then Faith has always been there for me. When I decided to compete in my first pageant Faith directed me to a system fit for me. I eventually started coaching with her for my second pageant (MAC nationals) where I could not have been more proud of how I competed. As I continued to coach with Faith she has helped me win many titles through MAC, including a 4th RU at nationals, and titles in other systems including MN Perfect, and other systems. Without the love and support brought by Faith and her wonderful husband Carl I would not have been able to achieve as much as I have and to have the confidence to compete. I would recommend Faith for anyone who decided to compete, or just anyone because you gotta have Faith!

No words can describe Faith and how amazing she is. Faith started working with my daughter (Sylvia) last year. Not only did she coach her into the top 15 in the Miss Teen Minnesota Pageant but Sylvia recently took the highly recognized and sought after Miss Perfect award for the Mid-West title. Faith has been with Sylvia (and me!) every step of the way. I knew nothing about pageantry before we found Faith and I cannot imagine navigating all of this without her. We not only feel like Faith is Sylvia's coach, but she has become a lifelong friend. A true blessing to us and someone we are so grateful for!

When you have Faith, you're in good hands!!! She is literally hands down the best there is when it comes to pageants! When you want to win, you gotta have Faith! I never competed in a pageant ever till I met Faith when I was 17 years old and she taught me so much to that I placed top 5 at Miss Teen USA 2004 (2nd runner up) and Miss USA 2007 (4th runner up). When you have her for a coach, you will succeed not only in pageantry, but also in life. There's a lot of knowledge to gain from her! She is truly one of a kind and I'm so grateful to have worked with her and call her family! I love Faith! She truly is a special person inside and out!

Working with Faith changed my life! She is truly the best coach ever. I competed in my first pageant when I was 22 years old. With no experience whatsoever, I had to have Faith! Faith was convinced that I had what it takes to make it to Miss USA, and I DID! 3 years later, I was crowned Miss Wisconsin USA and accomplished my dream of competing at Miss USA. Faith believed in me before I believed in myself, and for that I owe her a piece of my crown!

I've been a freelance makeup artist for 23 yrs. I've been around doing everything from photo shoots to editorial work. Then, about 15 yrs ago, I met Faith and did her makeup and hair for her bio pic. Finally, I had met someone who had the same crazy passion as myself! I found out how dedicated she was when I woke up at 2:30 am to use the bathroom, she was bedazzeling a prop for our clients costume. First, I asked her what the ** she was up. Then, I asked her how many points do the contestants get for the costume. She replied, no points. Then that's when I realized how dedicated she was. Also, that girl won! Then I became her head makeup artist for her pageants. If you wanna win at a state level, then at a national level, you gotta have FAITH!!!
