#WeeklySpark: Stephanie Feliciano

Sparks by ~blair25

“I wanted to prove to others that people with mental illnesses are still capable of extraordinary feats. It’s important for me to educate others about mental illness. We’re all flawed in our ways, and we should be able to love and embrace each other no matter what.”

As a bubbly, smiling 25-year-old, no one would ever have pegged Stephanie as someone suffering from bipolar disorder. But the last thing she wanted was to become a stereotype. Determined to prove to the world that she is strong, healthy and capable, you won’t believe the number of miles she’s logged all over the country, all in the name of charity.
