Nastasia-Simonida Krstic

Fundraising Assistant

Nastasia-Simonida Krstic is currently completing her fourth year at X University as a student in the Bachelors of Social Work program. Nastasia has learned over her four years in the program that her passions are to advocate for survivors of gender-based and/or sexual violence, and to support young people. In her spare time, Nastasia volunteers with X University’s Tri Mentoring Program where she mentors first and second year Social Work students and aids them with personal and professional problems. She also volunteers a minimum of six hours a week at X University’s Center for Safer Sex and Sexual Violence Support as a Peer-to-Peer Phone and Text Line Support Worker where she provides resources, referrals, and support to the university’s staff, students, and community members. Nastasia developed a strong understanding of communication, public speaking, and advocacy by being a member of her high school’s student council for all four years, and she is also multi-lingual (fluent in English, French, and Serbian). When not occupied by school or volunteering, Nastasia enjoys painting, listening to music, and biking!
