As a child Diana loved making models, she believed she wanted to become a civil engineer and understand structure, it wasn’t until her late teenage years that she had a change in heart and followed her true passion for Architecture. Diana is a strong believer of “functional art” which, in her perspective, she sees architecture as. She stated that she had a change in heart from civil engineer to architecture because she wants to accommodate for the people inhabiting the structures and give the inhabitants a wonderful experience, one that only an architect can give.
