Hi I’m Daizy, I’m an ex-law student, startup program manager at Deakin University and I host a podcast called The Daizy Project where we have meaningful conversations with entrepreneurs, change-makers and leaders (mostly women of colour) as well as exploring what it means to live a purposeful life. I’m based in Melbourne, Australia.

My curiosity about the world has led me to travel to Spain for study, Thailand where I served as an Australian Youth Ambassador for Development (AYAD) in Human Rights assisting refugees and asylum seekers, Tanzania where I co-founded Zana and India where I meditated in the Himalayas. I recently founded Bold Punjab to empower and unite bold South Asian women across Canada, India, Australia and USA.

Check out the Podcast here. I’m also quite active on Linkedin and Youtube
