Stephanie moved to New York City over four years ago to attend New York University and pursue her Broadway dreams. In May 2016, she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. During her time at NYU, Stephanie acted as an NYU Vocal Performance ambassador and performed in musicals, opera, and operetta. During her freshman year, she was chosen to perform the National Anthem for NYU sporting events, a position she held throughout her four years at NYU.
Now Stephanie is pursuing another one of her dreams in New York City: competing for Miss New York. Stephanie’s involvement in the Miss America Organization began when she was a teen contestant. Over the years she has gained self-confidence, performance experience, valuable scholarship money, and an MAO sisterhood. Stephanie has also developed and evolved her personal platform, A Ray of Hope: Healing Through Music, where she shares her time and talents with those who need it most.
During her year as Miss Greater NYC, Stephanie plans to further expand her platform in hospitals and nursing homes throughout the New York City area and involve other titleholders in her platform. She will continue to advocate for organizations such as Music & Memory and The Foundation for Art and Healing, programs that align with her personal platform by utilizing the power of music.
