CV Alum & Non-Profit Founder, Stephanie Debes, Named One of Staten Island’s ‘20 Under 40’

4/11/24 = Stephanie Debes, a distinguished CV alum, is not just revolutionizing the beauty industry with her remarkable contributions but also gaining well-deserved recognition for her work. Stephanie was recently featured in a SILIVE article ‘titled SIEDC Names “20 Under 40′ Award Recipients. Here’s a Look at Who’s Being Honored.” This feature was about her inclusion in the prestigious SIEDC’s ’20 Under 40’ award ceremony, which honors 20 Staten Island natives under the age of 40. Stephanie’s makeup artist expertise and life-altering philanthropic endeavors earned her a well-deserved place in this ceremony!

Despite the challenge of having Cerebral Palsy, her goal has been to help others with disabilities find jobs in the beauty industry. This led her to start a non-profit organization called The Makeup on Wheels Foundation. Her efforts have already impacted the lives of over 130 individuals! Her work to uplift the members of her community is one of the many reasons she’s being honored!

Let’s celebrate Stephanie’s achievements and her commitment to improving the lives of those in need. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Stephanie for being a valued member of the CV Family and for her inspiring philanthropic work!
