"When I entered the Illinois American Elegance Pageant I thought it would be for practice and a re-introduction back into the pageant world. Several months after being crowned a state title holder by Lauren Ransom, I was elated to be crowned a national title holder Ms. American Elegance Woman 2017. While this was my first time competing in the American Elegance Pageant system I was under great tutelage of my director Lauren Ransom. Lauren brings more than a decade of pageantry expertise as both a former contestant and director. I am thankful for Lauren who re awoken the beauty queen in me and I have since decided to teach young girls about inner beauty and self esteem. I feel like a real life Disney princess to the young girls each time I mentor the young ladies in my  Tea With A Queen Mentoring Group"  ~Rashanah Baldwin, Ms. American Elegance Woman 2017


Thank You

“I’ve had the privilege of knowing for over a decade in both professional and collegial capacities. Ms. Ransom is an integral leader, possessing passion, intelligence, high competence, and consistency. As colleagues in two institutions of higher education, I worked closely with Ms. Ransom in several initiatives. I’ve witnessed first hand her commitment to her direct reports, providing skilled coaching that enhanced performance in measurable ways. On numerous occasions, I’ve been privy to Ms. Ransom’s compassion and relentless support and empowerment to the student population she was entrusted to teaching, many of whom were underrepresented and underprivileged in higher education. Ms. Ransom tirelessly volunteers her time, giving back to the community. Having achieved high success, Ms. Ransom sees it as her responsibility to empower young people to pursue and accomplish their goals. Ms. Ransom would be an asset to any organization that’s looking to acquire a high functioning transformative leader. She has a stellar reputation locally and abroad. Her wealth of experience, laser focus, and sheer grit are undeniable, providing a distinct value proposition."
