Know Your Worth
with Stephanie Rosado
Introduce yourself! Who are you?
My name is Stephanie Rosado. My pronouns are she/her and her highness hahaa. I am a 26 year old openly bisexual scorpio hispanic woman (WHOA say that three times fast) with a big personality and an even bigger heart! ♥️♥️♥️
What is one thing no one really knows about you?
I am not a huge fan of the summer time! I feel like there’s too much pressure to look good and be social haha. I am my best me in the fall!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
My boyfriend’s mother told me I should go back to school before having children because I have free time NOWWW and probably won’t have the same free time then…. So I did! && now I am in school studying esthetics! Shout out to her♥️
What would you say to 16 year old you?
Giiiiirl, let me invite you to use SPF!
What is your greatest fear?
Losing someone close to me. I love and cherish those around me, I can NOT imagine life without them.
Have you ever had anyone doubt you?
Not really, but I’ve always felt the need to prove myself to others (My haters are imaginary)
What message do you think every woman should hear?
KNOW YOUR WORTH! Be nice to yourself and remember that you ALWAYS come first! PERIODT!
What is it like to be an entrepreneur?
Well fortunately for me I am a full time retail manager and I go to school part time. I am an entrepreneur when I have free time. This means promoting myself and my services on social media, showing off my brand and future ideas and honestly just taking some time to get to know/connect with people through DM on IG. I’ve met some really amazing and talented women by just reaching out to see how their day is going.
What is your favorite thing about where you live?
I love New Jersey! There is so much diversity when it comes to people, culture and religion. I grew up in Washington Heights, Manhattan which is a heavily Dominican populated area and although I loveeeeee my Dominicans I do enjoy being able to live with and learn about different cultures.
What do you love most about yourself?
My sense of humor! I’ve been told I’m really funny buttt that feedback was from my other personalities haha
Do you remember a specific time you overcame adversity?
A few years ago my dad and I got in to a really heated argument and at that point I decided to move out of my house. I moved in with my best friend for a few months then got my own place. If it weren’t for that argument I would probably still be living at home and settling for less in life. I’m proud to say I have been living on my own for 4 years and have accomplished many goals within this time!
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned along the way?
Trust yourself and trust god! I’ve learned to maximize with the tools and resources I have in the moment and pray for those that are to come!
What motivates you most?
MONEY *screams in my cardi b voice* LOL I used to be the WORST at saving money. I used to live paycheck to paycheck until I realized I am extremely talented and passionate about skincare, so I started taking extra courses in school to help enhance these skills. Once I did, I opened my services to the public and started making great side money applying lash extensions and performing luxurious facials.
How do you manage your work-life balance?
I don’t? Haha kidding! I love to plan ahead when it comes to work and my social life. I literally have to schedule in my “fun time” in order for it to happen. I have a monthly calendar hanging in my room that says either “work, school or play time.” I’ll literally text my friends like heyyy want to hang on June 7th, 26th or 30th? Lol!
What is your favorite meal?
ANYTHING WITH CHEESE! Pasta, pizza, cheese burgers (I eat like a 10 year old)
What do you do on a daily basis to grow and move forward?
I do a lot of self reflecting. I always look at what I love/dislike about something I did or something that needs to get done, then I put my best foot forward and incorporate these in to my next steps!
What is one thing people would be surprised to hear about you?
I went to 9 different schools growing up because my parents moved around a lot!
If you weren’t doing the job you have now, what would you be doing?
I would probably be a private investigator or something crime related. Im super into crime tv and as creepy as this sounds I look up unsolved cases on my time off.
What is something on your bucket list?
I would loveeee to zip line through a forest in Costa Rica.
Who is your biggest role model? Why?
My biggest role model would have to be women in general. Women are so strong, so beautiful and so educated. I am proud to be a woman!
Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration everywhere! Tv, books, magazines and the people around me.
What are your biggest passions?
My passions in life are always changing or evolving. One of my most consistent passions would be my passion for compassion. I am very caring, I lead with empathy and I treat others how I would like to be treated.
