Pearl School of Modeling has been featured on TEDx and recognize by Georgia governor Nathan Deal! Donate today!


Like a pearl, leaders are not born, they are cultivated with an intricate balance of pressure, stringent conditions and time for development.  Pearl School of Modeling cultivates “pearls”.  Linda Pearl Fils-Aime, a seasoned fashion model, author, speaker, and university professor, founded Pearl School of Modeling to impart leadership techniques, enhance etiquette and transform the self-image of young women in Atlanta, Georgia.

Unfortunately, not every student can afford the tuition.  As such, Pearl would like to offer you the opportunity to be a part of the personal and professional development of these students.  Become a part of Pearl’s Angels Network. The Network is an assembly of individuals and local business partners (angels) committed to assisting with the tuition of “Rising Pearls”.  Rising Pearls are potential students that have been selected, via a stringent vetting process, to receive a scholarship from the Pearl’s Angels Network.

The benefits to being an Angel in our Network include:

1) Thank you letter from the recipient of your contribution

2) Your name or company’s name featured on A Lady Named Pearl’s website

3) A progress report of the recipient performance in our school

4) Two tickets to the School’s annual celebration of graduating students, and name featured on program

We invite you to consider becoming an Angel and help a student participate in our  Programs.
