While at UC Davis she majored in Sociology and Socio-Cultural Anthropology and was highly involved in political spaces, such as M.E.Ch.A.

Through M.E.Ch.A. she was able to interact with the youth by volunteering in conferences geared to empower the Chicanx/Latinx community. Stephanie has a passion for serving first-generation, low-income, and marginalized communities, which is why throughout her time at UC Davis she worked for the UC Davis Transfer Opportunity Program.
