While at UTS, Stefan focused on how the influence of the sociopolitical and divergent histories finds itself expressed in our built environment and design of cities. He studied a year abroad in Germany at the Technische Univesität Berlin and he enjoyed living there so much he ended up staying for many years. While there, he worked across the creative industry, organized cultural events, traveled around Europe and North Africa, and frequently visited his childhood home in Belgrade, Serbia. He has lived in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, where he completed his postgraduate studies while volunteering and working with LGBTIQ+ health organizations, as well as working with schools and facilitating health literacy workshops. He went on to be Vice President and on the Board of a dynamic HIV rights organization in Melbourne. While studying, he competed and won second place as part of the University of Melbourne’s team at the prestigious Emory Global Health Case Competition in early 2020. He is fluent in Serbo-Croatian and German, is proficient in Spanish, and is currently learning Hebrew. Last year Stefan led the Putney Croatia Exploration program. This fall, Stefan will be returning to Australia, living between Belgrade and Melbourne, to pursue a new chapter in his career after two years in Madrid, where he was teaching English and Aussie culture at a local bilingual high school. He will be continuing to volunteer in his community and running the new civil rights organization he co-founded to help advance LGBTIQ+ rights in the Western Balkans region.
