Most importantly, she is the proud daughter of an immigrant mother and father. Growing up in an undocumented family, the transition from Argentina to Venice, Florida, created many barriers for Daiana and her family. These experiences and her social justice upbringing continue to inspire her fight for education and other opportunities for immigrants and other communities of color in the U.S. Currently, she lives in San Antonio, TX with her husband and two dogs where she enjoys evening walks, tubing in TX rivers and barbecues!
