Her diversity of life experiences enriches her writing and drives the complexities in her characters and their journeys. Through her stories, she hopes to bridge a much-needed cultural gap. She loves to explore social impact stories that challenge society’s expectations. One of her favorite things about storytelling is the ability to make interior life visible, and also show that exterior life can be worth a second look.When not writing, Diana is streaming shows and movies, researching new ideas and finding inspiration by watching Ted Talks or listening to podcasts.
