Krysta Battersby is a Higher Education and Student Affairs professional who is passionate about helping high school and college students grow while developing and cultivating their skills and talents. After completing my Master's in Higher Education and Student Affairs, my current position allows me to deal with issues surrounding the high school to college transition. In addition to awarding scholarship funds to high school students to attend NYU's School of Engineering, I support current students with programming and advising. Outside of NYU, I mentor with Sponsor's Equal Opportunity and Imentor, to encourage high school students to persist, graduate from high school and attend a higher education institution.
