She is interested in Drama, Chemistry and Politics. Daisy decided to take part in the TEDx talk this year because she wants to enlighten people about climate change which is a very important, global problem nowadays. Daisy chose this topic because she is willing to inspire others to take action against it and hopefully change their views on vegetarianism and veganism. Daisy said: “I hope that some people will think twice about ordering a Schnitzel and become wiser with their diet choices by knowing the consequences they have on our environment.”
