Stëfanie Lyn Kaufman: Founder + Executive Director Stëfanie founded Project LETS in high school, after surviving the loss of a friend to suicide; and living with her own neurodivergent experiences. She is a senior at Brown University, studying Medical Anthropology and Contemplative Studies. Stefanie focuses on the big picture with LETS - strategy, funding, program + curricular design, and team development. She lives with OCD (not just the hand-washing type), MDD, and BPD - even though her doctor told her not to share the last one with anyone else unless it was an emergency. She doesn't really like hypocrisy, so here it is. The good, bad, and ugly.
