Compassion seeps out of Stacy’s pores. I recall when she first encountered Jesus. She would bring her notebook to Sunday school and she would transcribe everything that was deserving of being remembered. She was parched for Jesus. The more she learned about Jesus, the bigger her heart got. That’s what I admire about Stacy. She didn’t just say she loves Jesus, but she embodied it. Back in 2016 she went to Honduras for a mission trip. Upon her return she started a new job, working in a suicide hotline. Her courage and tenacity was then uncovered.
Here goes my virtual questionnaire with Stacy:
1.What do you do?
I am currently going to school full time. I work part time as an administrative assistant and per diem as a test proctor for Pace University.
- What is one thing you would you like the audience to know about you?
I love to read and I purchase books often. I tend to start multiple books at once, I am currently reading 5 books.
- How do you deal with failures, hardships, judgmental and pessimistic people?
I have a fear of failure but I have learned to take failures as lessons and a place for me to only grow more. I have had many hardships in life that has helped fueled me to work harder, hardships only fuels me more. I do not like judgmental and pessimistic people but in my course study I have learned that I will have to deal with these individuals one way or another and the only thing I have control over is my response. Less reaction more response!
- What is the one thing that you would say contributed most to your success?
I do believe my faith and support system has been a tremendous influence for my success. I don’t know where I would be without my faith, hope, and trust in God. When I had no hope and just didn’t know how I could go on God was there to help me through. My friends have been so much of a great support for me throughout these years. My friends have transformed into family for me.
- What advice would you offer women wanting to be like you and make a difference?
I would tell them to stay true to who they are and do what they love. In a world where everyone is duplicating each other it is important that we remain true to self however that may look. Its ok if my path does not look like yours that is what makes us so beautiful. Do not be afraid to speak about how you feel, you are valued and important.
As I replay Stacy’s Christian journey, I am elated to not just say I love Jesus but also to live out His love. As a believer, she has completely epitomized this selfless love. I’m stronger with her as I grab a hold of this message. What does 2018 look like for her? She’s graduating with her Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling.
