The first words Suzy Bootz shared with me as a pageant coach were, “I coach from the inside out.” What a simple, yet profound and beautiful statement. There was no doubt in my mind at that moment that I had made the right decision to share this chapter of my pageant journey with Suzy.
Even after nearly three decades of pageant experience, I found her coaching style to be both refreshing and insightful. Suzy knows from her own success as a pageant competitor how to create a winner, and that credibility can only be earned.
I will forever be honored to call her my sister as a Mrs. International, a coach, and a friend.
Sarah C. Bazey
Mrs. International 2012

Enjoy your reign and remember that each of you have an amazing story to share through your platform of service and contribution. Sarah...welcome to the Mrs. International sisterhood!
Realize that you don't need to see yourself through the eyes of fear that others might see you through. You are not here in this life to placate to others... you are here in this life to be true to yourself. The moment you stop living for the approval of another is the moment when you realize that each tick in the clock of your life will be accountable only by you. It doesn't matter how the world outside of you perceives your journey through pageantry. What matters is how YOU perceive your journey. Allow yourself the privilege of being human and just breathing for now, and see where your heart takes you. Good night everyone and may God continue to make you realize that you can make every dream come true. xoxo Suzy
