Diyana first got fired up about health equity and social justice through her involvement in reproductive rights and anti-violence work in college. Since then, she has spent almost a decade coordinating nonprofit programs, communications, and advocacy. Diyana has also nurtured a skill set in workshop facilitation and popular education, and has a special interest in community leadership development and movement-building. She is a proud alumna of UCLA’s Asian American Studies master’s degree program (’12) and Barnard College, Columbia University (’06). Her favorite self-care rituals include reading sci-fi/fantasy, drawing, hiking, walking her dog, and cathartic karaoke.
