Fourteen-year-old Natasha attends Happy School in New Delhi. As the spokesperson for Youth for Human Rights in India, she has visited orphanages and other groups of children, lecturing about human rights. She has met with the President and the Prime Minister of India which was reported in the national media. She was recently awarded for her human rights work by the Delhi Police.
Ms. Jain said "I want to participate in this youth summit because I want to spread the message of human rights not only in my country but in all other countries of South East Asia. Youth are the richest reservoir of innate human energy, strength and creativity. They are the most potent tools for social change. Education is the process by which the society seeks to channel the strength, energy and creativity of youth for the progress and betterment of human civilization. It will be an honor for me and of course for my country. It is my dream to participate in this international youth summit."
