Stephanie (OhGinelle), is a confident, sassy, boss lady, who wears many hats; she is an influencer, a singer, a flight attendant, a wife and a mom to a fur baby.
Why is she an inspiration to me?
Stephanie is one of the most authentic people I know. She doesn’t change who she is for anyone, what you see is what you get. She also has this incredible passion for life, that is contagious. She works hard and plays harder, because she knows we only have one life to live and she definitely LIVES!
Stephanie is the perfect addition to our inspirational women series. We created this series, as it’s important for us to share stories from other women, to hear their accomplishments, regrets, advice and vision. We all have different journeys. But, we can definitely learn from and empower each other.
What is your biggest accomplishment thus far and why?
My biggest accomplishment was learning to just BE! I spent half of my life chasing a dream. I worked so hard that I missed out on a lot of things. I was so dedicated and focused that I did not even realize this dream of mine was not even something I loved anymore. I learned to let things go and just be, and truthfully that is my greatest accomplishment.
Looking back on your life thus far, is there anything you regret?
My college degree! Not trying to be a bad influence! Education is important, but I would have rather collected knowledge from seeing the world. I honestly feel like I wasted my time! I got a job in my field that I hated just to end u working somewhere that I love that required no more than a high school diploma and pays even better. I just ended up owing a lot of money for no reason.
What is the best piece of advice you can give another woman?
Be your authentic self. Sometimes it takes a while to figure out who she is, and that is ok. Once you find her, stick with her! Eff anyone who tries to tell you otherwise!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I just want to travel the entire world. I would like to be at least halfway through my bucket list by then.
What is the best piece of advice given to you?
Don’t ever worry about people’s opinions of you. What they think is none of your business.
What do you think stops a woman or yourself from putting herself first?
The constant feeling of needing to please everyone. How much can you really pour out of a glass that’s half full? If you can’t take the time to refill that glass it will end up empty.
What three words, could be used to describe you?
Confident. Carefree. SAUCY.
