She is the daughter of Ferdneit Downing Bailey and Steven Lee and the granddaughter of Ida Mae Downing and Roosevelt Lee Jr.
Throughout her time at Georgia Tech, Stefania made a continuous effort to make an impact on her campus, surroundings and home community. She carried on her musical talents starting freshman year all the way through her time as a senior by playing in the flute and piccolo in marching band, pep band and flute choir. After Hurricane Katrina she volunteered with Project H.O.N.O.R. (Helping Others in New Orleans Rebuild) and Habitat for Humanity with classmates during the 2008-2009 holiday breaks.
