The work she will be doing will give up a chunk of her  life to dedicate individuals who need more.  To Stephanie  Being a social worker means giving unconditionally, remembering how many organizations contributed to the resources and assistance and what it meant to her and family growing up.  She states “I would not be the woman I am if I did not live the experiences in my life if it wasn’t for what I had to face living in my community”.  It shaped Stephanie’s mind to pursue an education and help the lack of disproportionate population in the West side Of San Antonio.  Gentrification in our neighborhoods will change economically, moving wealthier newcomers and causing an increase in property and rent.    

As her internship arrived, she wanted to gain experience in a field; her choice was easy, leading  to The Pride Center.  One of the reasons for Stephanie’s  intention was to educate and establish cultural competence care and provide support but also understand the unique challenges, needs, and strengths to provide comprehensive care.  Stephanie is a proud Ally; her uncle passed away from AIDS in July 2002, and he never got to be his complete self and how he identified.  This is for him to bring awareness to our LGBTQIA community and provide comprehensive gender-affirming care.
