«I’ve been fortunate enough to follow the example of great empowered women and true leaders. They were able to make way with their work and dedication,» she stated.
Guatemaltecos Ilustres (Distinguished Guatemalans) wrote an article about Stephanie on their website, where they mention her leadership and dedication placed in every single space she occupies.
This award is undoubtedly an example of the passion and pride that each Progreso woman carries within, as they build together the country where we want to live.
The Guatemaltecos Ilustres Award was birthed by the desire to send a positive message and show that there are outstanding people in our country.
The guatemaltecosilustres.com website was created in 2013, as a public national space to propose and eventually discover stories of Guatemalans who are excelling in different disciplines.
