Stasa Nikodinovic - Bosnia and Herzegovina

Stasa-NikodinovicStasa Nikodinovic is currently finishing her Bachelor degree in Journalism and Communications at the University of Banja Luka. In 2006 Stasa became an exchange student and went to Potsdam, Germany, where she lived with a German host family and went to high school for one year. This way she became a part of a global student exchange network called "AFS Intercultural Programs", a voluntary, non-governmental, non-profit organization that provides intercultural learning opportunities. Stasa volunteered in several projects abroad and in her hometown Banja Luka, such as the „International Film Festival Kratkofil Plus“, „The World Rafting Championship“ and she was one of the organizers of the „Gender Movie Film Week Banja Luka“ in 2012.

In 2010 Stasa became a recipient of the (OSF) Open Society Foundations' Undergraduate Exchange Program full scholarship for a study abroad year at the University of Texas at Austin. She was a student at the Liberal Arts department where she took courses in the field of advertising, communications and race, ethnicity and gender studies. During her time in the United States Stasa volunteered at the public kitchen in “Salvation army”, at „Project Hope: painting some hope into lives”, the UNICEF chapter in Austin and on several other projects.
Upon completion of her year abroad, Stasa went back home to complete her studies and returned to Germany in 2012 as a participant of the „Ost-Ausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft”program (Internship Programme of German Business) that offers young graduates and students from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia the possibility of a three to six-month-long internship at leading German companies. As a part of this program, she interned at Germany´s International broadcaster „Deutsche Welle”(DW) for several months.

Stasa is hoping to complete her Master degree abroad in the field of Gender Studies and work in the NGO sector. In her free time she pursues some of her biggest passions: painting and learning new languages. She speaks English, German, Spanish and is in the process of learning Portuguese.
