United New Mexicans: Stephanie


"I’ve lived in New Mexico my entire life. I was born in Las Cruces and grew up in Los Lunas. Being a New Mexican means enjoying a view as far as the eye can see, catching the scent of roasting Chile in the fall, and seeing the snow on the mountains. I love the sense of community here; the people are kind and generous. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I think everyone can be united by the desire to improve our lives, to make the world a better place by acting for a better future and giving our children a place to grow and become the best they can be in anything they put their minds to."
