Daniela Grottoli is not your average 10-year-old. Instead of worrying about superficial ‘problems’, she is focused on bigger issues that are affecting not only Sudbury but the global population.

The grade 5 student at R.L. Beattie Public School is entering the Eye Level Oratacular speech competition for the second year in a row. Grottoli uses the Eye Level service here in Sudbury to do extended math work.

This competition is open to students in grades 1-8 across Canada and the U.S.

This year, she wanted to do her speech on gender pay equity but then she decided to write about something else. The global and local hunger crisis.

Shannon from KiSS Mornings asked her what changed her mind.
