In 2014, she joined the International Cycling Federation (UCI) centre of excellence to improve her technique and optimize her performance. After becoming World Champion and Olympic medallist in the following two years she now wants to share this success with all Venezuelans.
Stefany is an athlete who embodies the values of sport and believes that BMX is first and foremost a self-development and mental challenge. Very involved in the LGBT cause, she uses her reputation to defend the equality for all.
Conscious of what sport has brought her, she has become a Champion for Peace in order to help young Venezuelans blossom, transmit the values of the sport and establish peace.
