“I’m currently en route to graduation and looking for a job, although I’m trying to resist all of it! Anyways, in between now and finding a job, I intend to travel and volunteer at DaySpring New Life Centre. This volunteer work is actually related to my final-year project about unwed mums in Singapore.

In the beginning, I was a bit uncomfortable and averse to doing this project because I’m Christian and naturally pro-life. However, my perspective changed over the course of the campaign, and I realised that it isn’t about whether you subscribe to a particular belief or not.

It’s really about knowing that yes, these women have made mistakes and are in this predicament right now, but if they are in need of help and we could provide it, then we should.” – Natalie, 23
