Stephanie holds Magic Johnson’s famous quote, ‘All kids need is a little hope, a little help and someone to believe in them’, close to her heart. A massive youth advocate and a professional athlete, Stephanie is the Founder of Uniting Youth Through Sport, a foundation which uses sports as an avenue to engage youth. Having lived and played professional basketball in a number of countries, such as Italy, Spain, Sweden and Australia, Stephanie has a keen ability to relate with people from diverse backgrounds and connect with them individually (even in a group setting).
Passionate about working with young people to maximise their individual potential and supporting them on a pathway to a better future, Stephanie joined the Beacon Foundation Facilitation Team in 2016. There is never a moment in time when Stephanie is not researching, reading or taking a class to increase and broaden her knowledge, and enhance her skills.
