I had a bit of difficulty understanding what she was saying at first. To be completely honest, I had to re-watch this video twice to really get a grasp of what she was saying. However, Mel Chua is a very interesting and quite unique individual.  To me, she stands out from the rest because what she discuesses in her video is a little different than a lot of things.
