Diana comes from Chimaltenango, a medium-sized town west of Guatemala City. Diana feels that her secondary school agricultural training has given her a good basis of agricultural knowledge to build upon at EARTH.

The idea of environmental stewardship has always interested her, and at EARTH, she hopes to combine her interest in ecology with training in innovative business practices. In this way, she hopes to prepare herself to start a company someday with her brother.

By creating employment opportunities and offering technical expertise in her rural hometown, she plans to help the community.
