"Training with you has been a life changing experience. Grace, you're not just a pageant and modeling coach, you are a life coach. It's an amazing feeling when you find someone to work with that truly wants what's bext for you!"
"I was looking to take myself to a whole new level of competition for Miss USA 2011. I found exactly that with Grace! She prepared me mentally and physically for Miss USA with her detailed and personalized approach. I was re-born a new person with her help."
"I believe Grace Fontecha’s mother must have had a notion of who her daughter would become, because Grace truly personifies all that her name means: elegance, refinement, loveliness, polish, beauty, style, poise and charm. "
"I'm grateful that Grace Fontecha came in to my life. I feel blessed to have worked with her. She not only helped prepare me for Miss DC USA and Miss USA but she helped me come in to my own as a person."
"You are my angel, my “Aunt Grace”, my hero, most importantly one of my best friends. You have taught me how to smile from the inside. You will never know how much you have changed me, I could never thank you enough for all you have done. You are like a second mother to me."
"I had such an amazing experience learning from you because you didn’t just teach me how to act at a pageant but you taught me how to act in life. I learned so much in just one week and I am grateful for every moment."
