Bio: I’m Stefani, a gleeful geek who’s a traveler of life and the world. When not obsessing over Star Wars verbally, physically, and mentally, I enjoy reading and doing volunteer work. As an aspiring physician, I hope to heal and help fellow citizens from across the galaxy, both in and out of the clinic.
In school? What grade? Out of school? What do you do for a living?
I am a student at Barnard College of Columbia University in New York City!
Who is your role model?
From a young age, I was very much aware of how Princess Leia stood out from others around her, and clearly redefined what it means to truly be a princess, intrinsically as well as externally. Her audacity, fearlessness, and unwavering devotion to what she stands for reaches farther than the capacity to inspire; not once is Leia ever tempted to turn against what she knows is right, and such strength and passion in a character ignite something deep within us all, something beyond words that transcends the Force itself. Princess Leia continuously inspires me to strive towards becoming the best version of myself, most especially in the face of doubt or fear. Her wisdom and unabashed fortitude validate her integral role in the Star Wars universe as one that is both vital and irreplaceable.
So many fandoms. What’s yours?
Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Disney, Marvel Comics (Spider-Man!), D.C. Comics, Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus, Shakespeare (yes, go right ahead and laugh), and Lord of the Rings.
