The Queen I Am
Some time ago I lost my way, the reason why I could not say. I’ve been through a lot, put up a good fight,
yet day after day, I couldn’t find the light.
Then one day I received a request,
would I be a model, dressed in the best? Although I was scared, I answered “sure”, and on that day, magic began to occur.
That day I met women much like me,
who fought our cancers, and became cancer-free. But the most important person I met on that day, my Mentor, Celeste, who offered me a way.
She told us all if we so dared, we could become Queens, if we were willing to share. Banish our demons with prayer and with hope, and leave with the tools we needed to cope.
The work was hard but I always did try,
although at times it felt easier to die. I learned to let God take care of my stress, and with His help I fixed my life mess.
And then one day I began to see,
“The Queen inside, the Queen that’s me!” Thank you Celeste for the gifts you gave, because of you, I have found my way.
Queen Making has been a life changer for me. Through Celeste’s coaching and encouragement I was able to heal and push past a year of loss and become open and willing to dream, believe and achieve. --Daneen
You are such an amazing, strong, and beautiful woman that inspires me everyday. Thank you for always believing in me and supporting my dreams. I wouldn’t be who i am with out you. --Courtney
Responsiveness, loyalty, team builder, self-starter, trustworthy and an excellent communicator. As the owner and founder of the Rancon Group of companies, I have employed thousands of individuals and I honestly put Celeste in the top 1%. -Dan
Celeste has had an immeasurable impact on the young ladies in our school through her mentorship, coaching, and service. As a mentor, Celeste is an outstanding role model and provides endless encouragement to the girls on her softball team. She coaches them to be outstanding players on the diamond through her well-planned, organized, focused practices. She encourages them with daily devotions and takes advantages of opportunities to teach life lessons. She challenges the girls to work collectively to achieve something they could never achieve alone. She is the ultimate example of a servant leader! --Amber
