We had the good fortune of connecting with Stephanie Limelight and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Stephanie, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
I’m from Woodbury NJ and at a early age I was introduce to things most Adults would have a hard time dealing with. I was in foster care until age 10 then got adopted by a family that had 8 other kids. Growing up my childhood wasn’t the best but once I found God and understood we all have our own battle to overcome to really reach out full potential in life. I broke many chains and having my kids look up to me everyday and tell me they want to be just like me when they grow up is the best feeling in the world. That and I didn’t become a Product of my Environment.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First I will take them to eat at either Yo chef or Krab Queen downtown ATL. Next we would tour the city and go to the aquarium. Then also check out the belt line. Later we would hit the studio and check out some talent and then go to Enjoy some Atlanta night life.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I like to dedicate this to my kids causeno matter what they just sticking by me when I made the decision to open my own business and it was going to take a lot of time from them.
