A year after receiving her diploma from Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (Brazil), Daiana had the opportunity to discover what makes Canada such a diverse country. She did her Master of Science at University of Toronto, where she was awarded two scholarships from the university, besides the Delta Kappa Gamma World Fellowship prize.
She worked as a dentist in Brazil, translator and waitress in Canada, scientist in Switzerland (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) and English teacher in Thailand. However, her diverse interests guided her path towards a post-graduate certificate in Strategic Management in Harvard. The opportunity to be part of such an enriching and intellectually stimulating community was one of the most remarkable experiences of her life.
Travel, photography and writing are passions and part of her essence.
