Nafsika Antypas is a TV host, producer, activist, writer/author and entrepreneur. She founded a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, People Against Violence in 2014, to help victims of violence seek guidance and assistance with its 24-hour helpline, monitored by certified counselors. She also designed the unique uAlert Personal Safety app in 2014, helping its user alert their loved ones and local police in emergencies.
But being a passionate vegan, Nafsika felt that the only way to truly help make the world a more compassionate place is to help people go vegan. So, in late 2015, Nafsika put together a unique show that within 6 months would become the first vegan lifestyle series to ever hit mainstream television (A&E), reaching 70 million households.
The TV series, Plant-Based By Nafsika focuses on a plant-based diet and vegan living, a concept Nafsika hoped would help change the world through food. This has not only sparked the interest of viewers around the globe but has “planted seeds” helping veganism become more mainstream, a goal Nafsika conveys in her motto, “If You Plant It, It Will Grow.
In 2017, Nafsika became a certified Health & Lifestyle Coach, helping people make the “Plant-Based Switch” to a healthier, more compassionate lifestyle.
But there was one very important obstacle stopping people from going vegan, and that was giving up their beloved cheese. So by late 2018, Nafsika founded the hottest new vegan “cheese” in town, Nafsika’s Garden, hitting major retailers across Canada, followed by the U.S. and now, globally.
Nafsika also always taken pleasure in writing, be it for business or pleasure. She has appeared on numerous television and radio shows across the globe, has contributed her writing and been interviewed by online publications such as PETA, VegNews, EmpowHER, Insider, Health Digest and more. She is the author of “Ghosted” and several other books.
