MT truly cares about making young women the best version of themselves. Her coaching sessions are focused and you always leave better than you came. She gives great feedback balancing strengths and opportunities for improvement. She is a masterful writer and very creative. She understands how to work with a young woman to leverage her unique strengths. I support and recommend MT without reservations. My daughter is better because she knows her - we both are! Yes, MT has the skills, passion, and proven track record to help you accomplish your pageant goals, but even more she helps you accomplish life goals.

Ms. Maria Teresa wrote my first spokesmodel speech and worked with me on my inflection and enunciation. As a result, I won my first spokesmodel competition at POA Nationals! I enjoyed working with MT. She was fun and I felt like she truly wanted me to do my very best.

Maria- teresa is more than just a pageant coach. She is like a role model and friend to me and all the girls she works with. Plus it’s no secret the amazing results she gets. She knows her stuff and works really hard to do so. I admire her for that. She really cares about all of her girls and will be there for a good laugh or a quick pep talk whenever needed. She’s a big part of the reason I always feel so confident stepping onto the stage. She knows how to make someone feel ready and confident in who they are and all of their beliefs and I truly appreciate her for that.

Maria-Teresa at Pageants 2 Go was our coach for NAM Nationals 2018. She also wrote our introduction for the Missouri State Pageant this summer. She also wrote the Spokesmodel speech for Nationals, where my daughter was First Runner-Up in that optional competition. She is an excellent coach and we would not hesitate to use her in the future, possessing the ability to pick out areas which needed improvement and polishing before the national pageant. Interview was the area where she was the most helpful, even utilizing other professionals to conduct mock interviews with our daughter. I was very impressed with her ability to organize her clients and ensure each one had plenty of one-on-one time with her via Skype leading up to the pageant and in person in California during the week of NAM nationals. Our daughter was in the top 5 at the National Pageant, and MT's expertise no doubt played a part in that accomplishment.

My name is Nahian Khan and I had the privilege of working with MT this past year in preparation for the National American Miss North Texas Teen pageant. I decided the best package for me would be the Diamond Package. Through this package, MT helped me prepare for all my required competitions and my optionals. Overall due to my work with MT I was able to place in the Top 15 at my state pageant. Not only is she a wonderful, dedicated and knowledgeable coach, but a caring, compassionate human being as well.

MT's knowledge of the pageant world and real world go hand-in-hand. She has given me lifelong advice that will go far beyond pageantry as I feel so much more equipped to accomplish my goals through MT's coaching. From going to not placing as a semi-finalist to finally capturing the state title of my dreams after only a few sessions, MT's dedication to her clients is remarkable. MT provides feedback that will cater to your personal needs and lead you to feeling confident about your ability to take on the world. Thank you Pageants2Go for all you do!

From the moment I reached out to Maria Teresa to craft Brianna's introduction for State, I knew Brianna was in for a Win. The way Maria Teresa was able to take Brianna's personality to pen and paper and write her story shows me of her  attention to detail and   professionalism with her clients. When Brianna first read the introduction, I felt her confidence immediately! Not only did Brianna win her State tittle with Maria Teresa's captivating and winning introduction, Brianna was also able to Capture the National American Miss Jr. Teen title as well. Brianna also won the 2018 National Spokesmodel speech award at International Junior Miss. I know for sure, that this would have not been possible without Maria Teresa dedication and amazing work. A millions thanks for making  such an impact in Brianna's life and giving her the tools she needed to capture the crown. We will forever be thankful and definitely grateful to this remarkable woman and her excellent services.

I used Pageants 2 Go's introduction writing service for International United Miss Internationals in July 2018. Due to MT's amazing introduction writing abilities, I felt extra confident on stage and rocked the personal introduction competition, taking home the title of International United Miss 2018-2019! I cannot thank her enough, and recommend her for all your pageant coaching needs!

I am pleased to have the opportunity to submit this review. Working with MT is a true joy. She checks all the boxes which one would want in a coach. She is personable and very approachable. But most importantly she is thorough, prepared and meticulous. A coach should be able to do for you what you cannot do for yourself and should be that bridge that gets you to cross into areas that may otherwise be unobtainable. Their knowledge and experience should be of high value. This standard matches what is provided by MT. Her personalized instruction and incite are invaluable. She spends countless hours staying ahead of trends and not responding to them. With MT you never feel as though you are part of a coaching mill but that she truly believes in building a team of individuals with all of her clients. MT's writing skills, eye for style, color and simply knowing what elicits what reaction are the best in the business.

MT is a sincere, encouraging and knowledgeable coach. She took a young lady (our daughter) from pageant novice to a confident young lady who was able to place in her state pageant. She taught our daughter so much through the entire process, and it motivated her to work even harder. The thing we enjoyed the most was knowing that our daughter was having a positive adult influence (María)in her life—always instructing, challenging and encouraging her along the way. The confidence our daughter gained has no price tag.

MT is simply amazing! She is extremely organized, detail oriented, and an overall joy to work with. She truly cares for each and every one of her girls, making sure we are always feeling prepared and at our best. She even threw a party for all of her Platinum Princess coahing clients at NAM nationals this year where we all had a secret sister gift exchange and made ice cream sundaes! I highly recommend her services to anyone in need of coaching, speech/personal intro writing, interview practice, and everything in between. She is an awesome coach, and an even more amazing friend!

We have worked with Maria-Teresa for years for introduction and speech writing and she is fabulous! This year we used her exclusively in preparation for National American Miss Nationals. The package she provides is second to none. My daughter has never felt so prepared and confident and it showed in her final placement. MT makes time for her clients and never makes you feel rushed. I highly recommend her!

Maria was absolutely amazing to work with! She gave my daughter so much confidence and support in preparation for both POA and NAM. Shelby placed 1st runner up at POA after just a few sessions and Maria writing her introduction. Maria used the judges feedback to prepare for NAM in the summer. Shelby's scores at NAM improved over 1 point in both her Introduction and Interview categories which had been her weaker areas in previous years. She also coached her to her first Actress win! This was our very first coaching experience and I cannot say enough about how much both Shelby and I enjoyed working with her!

MT is the most outstanding coach! She connected with my daughter, Annie Kutyna, from the start. It was so fun to watch Maria Teresa (MT) and Annie work together!!! She took the ideas Annie had, her personality and her talents to the next level. After working with MT for just a year Annie won 9 awards (7 wins) in NAM that year: Volunteer Service Winner, Most Promising Model Winner, Best Resume Winner, Photogenic Winner, Casual Wear Winner, Actress Winner, Spokes Model Winner, Talent 4th Runner Up, Top Model 4th Runner Up. Although Annie never won the crown in NAM ... later that year she won Miss Virginia Teen USA 2015. I credit MT as one of the contributors to her success. With Annie, she got to know who she was and took that knowledge to coach her to be the best version of her. She was motivating and built confidence. Annie voice was so much stronger. IT WAS FUN AND EXCITING EVERY TIME we got together. For us, that is the most important aspect to have fun and excel. MT should be recognized for the tremendous work she does with young women. We are lucky to have her in our life!
