Another benefit of all these adventures? The people you meet along the way.
Since the age of 17, one crucial reason Stephanie went on her trips was to meet and learn about different people.
Through these adventures, she's had life-changing experiences that allowed her to understand cultures and religions she hadn't been exposed to before, shifting her entire perspective of everyone around her.
In her own words;
"It took me from being "country-centric' and 'ego-centric' to becoming more 'world-centric.' It makes me want to understand more- how we're in this together as a world, not as a country, not as individuals."
