Hi, my name is Stephanie. I am a loyal person. Like loyal to my family, loyal to my friends, work, and church. I think that's a good quality. My best friend and I have been best friends since kindergarten. So, so far so good!
I moved to Eugene when I was five. We moved in with my grandma after my grandpa had a heart attack and died. We went to school here, and I haven't left. I love Eugene. I love the community. My family has always been super supportive. My mom was always like, "You can do whatever you want. Whatever you put your mind to." She really wanted me to be a lawyer. There was no way! Sometimes I give myself deadlines that aren't realistic. Like, you know, I wanted to be married and have kids at 24 because that's what my parents did. No one has ever said, "You can't do that." I guess if they did, I did it to prove them wrong. (Softly giggles) I am willing to go with the flow. My advice to others would be to be at peace with what you're doing and trust you're doing everything in your power to be who you want to be.
