Thinking about yourself as the young woman in your teenage photo, what did you think life held in store for you?
I have no idea what I want to do, maybe acting? But definitely not a teacher [note: as it turns out Stephanie did go into teaching and she is now a lecturer at university, so this wasn’t an accurate prediction!]. It will be lovely to leave school and get into the real world.
What advice would you give your younger self now about being young and growing older?
Have a bit more self-confidence in what you can do. Things won’t always go as planned but there’s a lot more opportunities out there than you think there are. You are trying to do too much – and I’m afraid that won’t change.
