Born and raised in Houston – a city with a rich, diverse cultural landscape and a deeply creative spirit –Stefany has always recognized the importance of making space for the differences that make each of us unique. From our countries of origin down to our musical inclinations, she loves to celebrate the things that make each of us who we are. She is passionate about investing in community and about music; two things she is able to fuse at pARTnerschools. Music has been a lifelong passion of hers. Her interest in music and singing began at a very early age. She started singing at her church at the age of 6 and has not stopped since. Her family and her church community helped foster and cultivate her gift by continually challenging and encouraging her. Since, Stefany has recognized the value of exposing youth to musical experiences early on in order to create a solid base for a creative life. She is heavily involved at her church, where she has served as a youth leader and is currently serving as a worship leader and a community outreach contributor. She is an alum of Andrews University, where she received a double major in Journalism and Music and a minor in Spanish. She currently finds herself in the world of horticulture, working at the corporate office for a wholesale nursery headquartered in Texas. Stefany is beyond excited to be on the pARTnerschools’ team and bring musically creative performances and experiences to various schools across the great city of Houston.
