Stephanie Pereira

Program Associate, MANO Project

Stephanie was born and raised in Boston, MA in a Dominican family. After completing her bachelors at Smith College she joined AmeriCorps providing legal advocacy to low income individuals and families. She continued her work in the non-profit field at Rosie’s Place (a shelter for homeless and low income women) where she worked as an advocate providing assistance and resources to homeless, low income and non-English speaking families and individuals in the community and in Boston Public Schools.

She pursued her Master in Business Management at Wake Forest to get a broader business education. Her previous position as a Campus Recruiter at a consulting firm allowed her to work with college students and work to get opportunities for students that come from underrepresented communities. She is excited to continue to work with the MANO Project and working with an organization who shares the same core values that she lives by.

In her free time she is a cake decorator, loves the outdoors, doing arts and crafts and spending time with family.

Why she works for Hispanic Access…

“I am excited to be a part of an organization working with others who are as passionate about empowering, strengthening and working directly with Latino and underserved communities as I am. I am specifically passionate about working with young adults in the BIPOC community entering the workforce and supporting them to build their confidence, personal and professional development, it is why I am excited to be a part of the MANO project and continue making an impact!”

In her spare time…

“In my spare time, I love to bake and decorate Cakes, puzzle, arts and crafts and enjoy the outdoors with friends and family!”

Her favorite book…

“One of my favorite books is called " Dial A for Aunties," it is a mystery/comedy/romance mix of genre. I love this book because the author writes showcasing complexities within the Asian diaspora, growing up in an immigrant family and the love, fun, challenges, trials and tribulations that this experience brings. It has a major plot twist but the themes behind family, diaspora, and languages are very interesting and relatable.”

A person she finds inspirational…

“It is hard to pinpoint just one person because all of the women in my life have been huge inspirations. They are some of the most hard working, passionate, funny, optimistic, and driven women I know and I am blessed to be around such great and inspiring company.”
