Stephanie G Paraiso was born in Monrovia, Liberia West Africa in 1975. Hailing from a multi-talented family, she would eventually shadow her mom who served as the Assistant Minister of Tourism in Liberia with broadcasts, tours and educational programs as well as being very active in her church. In 1990, during her junior year of high school, her life would be altered due to civil unrest in Liberia, forcing her to relocate to the African nation of Cote D’Ivoire (the Ivory Coast), where her father resided and then to the United States in October of the same year. Upon completing high school in 1993 with an Advanced Studies Diploma, she pursued a degree in Mass Media Production and Broadcasting with a minor in Accounting. Stephanie later began producing and directing Public Access Media Programs for Gospel News Television Ministries in collaboration with Gospel Music Workshop of America and Jones Communications Network in Alexandria, Virginia. In 1998, God interrupted her secular education and enrolled in World Harvest Bible College, now Valor Christian in Columbus, Ohio. She graduated Magnum Cum Laude with a Diploma of Arts in Religion in Cross Cultural Communications. While in Bible College, she served as one of the Outreach Coordinators for the homeless shelter, prison, hospital, nursing home and street evangelism ministries. Stephanie also assisted with the production of Breakthrough Television Broadcast with Pastor Rod Parsley and was an intercessor and mentor for the X-Change Youth Ministry. She then transitioned into her role as the Minister of Education at World Fellowship Church International (now Divinity Church), and Administrative Coordinator for Five Star Ministerial World Alliance where she trained candidates preparing for full time ministry… It was then that she began to train people of all ages in Public Speaking, Goal Setting and Branding & Marketing. Stephanie is currently part owner of LipFly, a Branding & Marketing company, and General Manager at 106liveradio.com. For more info, visit LipFly.com.
