RANDOM FUN FACT 1: Stephanie played the second witch in her year five performance of Macbeth, which they performed for Queen Elizabeth II who visited the school due to a recent Ofsted win. To this day, Stephanie’s Mum ensures that she recounts this anecdote to any and everyone she meets.
RANDOM FUN FACT 2: Stephanie was once hugged by her celebrity crush/husband Jason Momoa during a Comic-Con appearance in 2018, however, she cannot remember the actual meeting as she may or may not have blacked out after Jason Momoa complimented her on her braids.
“He (Jason) smelled of Guinness, musk and unproblematic masculinity. I levitated.
As he hugged me, I could feel the feminism leaving my body, smh.”
