The #CrownTalk™ Podcast

Emily Pearl is the creator and host of the podcast #CrownTalk™.  As a Miss America titleholder, Emily realized that many titleholders were struggling to do virtual appearances and continue supporting their various causes during the COVID-19 pandemic.  In an attempt to highlight the amazing work being done by young women across the country, each episode of #CrownTalk™ features candid titleholder-to-titleholder conversations and includes advice, titleholder experiences, and tips for keeping your crown on your head! We answer the question "so what do you DO exactly?" #CrownTalk™ is available anywhere you listen to podcasts, and right here on California's Pearl!

 Read Dream Succeed 

Read Dream Succeed™ California is an initiative created by Emily Pearl to make sure that all students can read at grade level, particularly those in K-4th grades.


In San Joaquin & Sacramento Counties, 58% of K-4th graders cannot read at grade level.  Across California, 25% of those students cannot read at grade level. In the United States, students are 4 times more likely to drop out of high school if they are struggling to read in 3rd grade. 

Reading is more than a pathway to literacy and a high school diploma. Reading skills and a firm belief in your ability to pursue your dreams will harness student success.
