Working for BBC Stories, she tackled themes such as equal opportunities, the hardships faced by young people, women’s rights and mentoring.
Speaking to BBC on their daughter’s working experince, Natasha’s family said her dream from onset was to work for the BBC.
“From childhood Natasha was fascinated by language and the power of words. In her teenage years she was drawn to the media and to work for the BBC was her dream. Working on digital news gave Natasha the platform to explore new approaches to broadcasting something she was so passionate about.”, the family said.
“Shakespeare summed up Natasha’s approach to journalism well in A Midsummer Night’s Dream: ‘Though she be but little she is fierce.'”, they further stated.

“She brought light to the darkest of situations and could motivate and encourage you to give your best with just a little smirk.”, Kevin Pashby said.
When Natasha was alive she achieved a lot in the field of her career. In April 2014, Natasha had spent a whole year in Machester where she worked and developed a short movie for “The One Show”.
Natasha secured access to a school caught up in the “Trojan Horse” schools affair and obtained an interview with the mother of a boy who was killed after he went to fight in Syria.
Josh Reynolds, who worked alongside Natasha at the programme, says she made a lasting impression there as “a bad-ass, fearless journalist who wouldn’t take no for an answer when she believed in a story, especially when it came to female-focused stories”.
In 2017, she moved to Digital Current Affairs, joining the BBC Stories team as a founding member.
She combined her lectures and studies around working on the radio’s breakfast show, getting up at 4.30am but still making it to lectures for 9.30am.
