Nobel Laureate José Ramos-Horta
“…In every season she has worked with me to rally the other Nobel Laureates for vital causes including Sudan, Iraq and others. She has represented me in drafting sessions for joint statements of the Nobel Laureates on important international matters. In 2002, when I was on my way to a conference of Nobel Laureates, I was forced to return home by a terrorist bombing in Bali. I asked Mary to deliver my speech to the conference for me, which she did…
“For many years I have trusted Mary to edit and place my work with international media, including the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune, the Wall Street Journal and others… She is extremely literate and able to navigate politically sensitive materials. She demonstrates confidence in working with high-level editors and agents.
“I find Mary extremely bright and creative, and most importantly, trustworthy. I have repeatedly relied on her good judgment and consider her an asset to the government of Timor-Leste, and to the world of the Nobel Peace Prize winners.”
