Harriet Tinka, Your Pageant Coach

I blend my past successes as an international model with a career as a finance professional and business owner.  I have spent years working with the youth and aspiring models to build their confidence and instill in them skills necessary to be successful not only as models, pageant participants but also in careers and life in general.  I mentor and coach women of all ages to create success in their day-to-day   life as well as on the stage or on the runway.  My first pageant coaching resulted in immediate success, it was for Miss Teen Edmonton World 2013. My assistance revolved around interview questions, onstage presence and pageant walking style.  My contestant won her local pageant and went on to capture her national title and placed in the Top 15 at the world competition!  My clients almost exclusively come through referrals.  Since 2013, my pageant contestants have achieved success at the local, national, and international level.

Understanding the different styles of all the major pageant systems allows me to successfully coach students at local and national levels. Even the most beautiful and brightest need to be guided through their journey to be prepared.  My techniques for interview questions focus on teaching the delegate to think during the interview so that they can respond quickly, on-the-spot to any question that they’re asked by the judges. Interviewers provide positive feedback on the quality of interviews with my contestants.   Pageant walking is another critical element and with my background as an international model is invaluable.  After a relatively small number of sessions, one of my contestant was honored with the top award for best pageant walk at the 2015 Miss Universe Canada pageant. I absolutely love working with pageant contestants because it is about learning important life skills and personal development. I look forward to contributing to your pageant success.

Yours Truly, Harriet Tinka
