When I was a Professor, I founded the Fashion Program at the University of the District of Columbia, attracting President Obama’s White House Initiative, partnerships with The Gap, and a grant from the Tommy Hilfiger Foundation.

In my book, Stephany’s Style Secrets: 7 Steps to Live and Dress Your Best, I described the huge risks I took for what I believed I would gain in the future. Now, every day, my young son’s smiling face and his precious laugh remind me that the reward is indeed greater than the risk.
