"I must dedicate part of my crown to Ciera and Crown Bound Consulting. Ciera helped me tremendously with the technical elements to prepare for my pageant like posture and walking, presentation, and platform-building. But even more importantly, Ciera helped me believe that I could win! She was so encouraging and hyped me up any chance she could! I believe that more than anything else, the confidence she built up in me shined through on the competition stage and allowed me to win Ms. Black USA 2023. Eternally grateful to have worked with her. Thank you for everything, Ciera!"

"Crown Bound Consulting was one of the best decision I did when preparing for my international pageant! As a pageant newbie and an introvert, Ciera was able to help me think deep about my passions and values, then turn those thoughts into actionable goals which made for the best outline for interview and on stage question! I felt confident walking into each phase of competition and it showed in placing top 5 in my first pageant! I got countless compliments on my confidence and speaking ability! Ciera goes above and beyond to make sure you’re ready to shine on stage! Thank you so much!"

"I absolutely LOVED working with Ciera! She has been fine tuning me for the past few years and each time we meet I always leave feeling positive and ready to conquer any pageant. She's pushed me to do so much more than she knew I was capable of and because of it I've won various awards from various systems. And I've even been able to capture my very first national title thanks to her! I loved that she was always there for me and on call and worked with me till I felt comfortable. If your not working with her now I don't know what your doing but you need to get on it pronto!"
