In 2008, Stacey was in the dance ensemble of a NY City Center production. This was across the street from the very place where the foundations of her dreams and body-image issues were planted--Carnegie Hall. Having been discouraged from pursuing a career in the performing arts because she did not possess the "ideal" body type, Stacey laughed at the irony of where she was…literally and figuratively.

Compelled to inspire others towards pursuing their dreams regardless of naysayers, Stacey produced, 
Though I'm Not Perfect, which went on to garner the Honolulu Film Award for Best Educational Film.
