She’s also taught radio to teenagers, and in 2012, she designed the curriculum for a two-week summer radio workshop. She used that curriculum to help teenagers with pediatric AIDS tell their stories through radio. A native of southern Delaware, Stephanie graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in communications. Before she found her way to radio, she worked in the children’s division of the publishing house Farrar, Straus, and Giroux. You can find her on Twitter @stephanie_h.
