Natasha Naidu

Natasha is a third year Arts/Law student and this is her first year on the Editorial Board. She is from Terrigal on the Central Coast and is the recipient of the Academic Achievement Award. She currently works as a paralegal in family law and commercial litigation and is interested in the positive and negative impact of legal structures on the family unit, especially during the process of divorce.

Natasha is strongly passionate about the universal right to education. In 2013 she co-founded a project which raised $25,000 and built a school in Cambodia. For this she was awarded the Central Coast Young Person of the Year Award as well as a highly commended for the Marie Bashir Peace Prize from the then Governor of NSW Dame Marie Bashir herself.

Since coming to university, Natasha has enjoyed being a yellow shirt volunteer, law camp leader, lawplus peer mentor and a producer of law revue. Having gained fluency in Japanese after a three month exchange to Japan at the age of 15, she participated as a teacher’s aide to the UNSW Beginners Japanese course last year.
