"I have met young Singaporeans who started their own organisations in Singapore, and even a very rare few Singaporeans who did this in support of humanitarian or development issues overseas. Yet I have never met a Singaporean who has taken on such difficult and demanding human rights issues in such challenging external contexts as Natasha has done.“
