IniSHEtive Podcast

Beginning as the #CrownTalk™ podcast during the COVID-19 pandemic, Emily Pearl began recording her chats with titleholders across the country.  Falling in love with Miss America's social impact initiative, IniSHEtive™ podcast was born.

Whether women are in the Miss America Organization or outside, we all have a unique initiative or "iniSHEtive" if you will.  Women creating change in their communities deserves greater attention.  Here Emily chats with women who are advocating for their initiatives and embracing their leadership potential.

 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.
