“I created Woman of Achievement to help women who are still pursuing their talents, community service and educational goals “after” the age 26 – which is often the maximum age allowed in many traditional pageants such as Miss America.   Woman of Achievement offers workshops, scholarships and a place to perfect speaking skills, branding and creation as each woman launches her “brand” into the world.”

Marlena Martin, Founder
