Hi I’m Daizy, I’m based in Melbourne in Australia.

My curiosity about the world has led me to travel to Spain for study, Tanzania where I co-founded Zana Consulting, Thailand where I served as an Australian Youth Ambassador for Development (AYAD) in Human Rights working on assisting refugees and asylum seekers and India where I meditated in the Himalayas.

I was honoured to be named Boroondara Young Citizen of the Year in 2015 and have advocated for gender equality through Pink Ladoo which has been featured in India Link, Herald Sun and SBS Punjabi. In my spare time I like practicing Spanish, pumping Punjabi tunes and watering my indoor pot plants.

Recently I sat down with the folks at Project Lantern and shared more about my story. You can check out the episode below.
