While Stephanie is initially bossy and judgmental, she lacks the possession of her own individuality, mindlessly following anything and everything that Emily orders her to do. Her loyalty to Emily also results in an air of entitlement, as she believes that is virtually untouchable due to her friendship to the dance captain. Though ambitious in her pursuit of a career as a triple threat, Stephanie often falls into complacency as a byproduct of this entitlement, one having to be convinced to merely take an audition.[14]
