Diana is very funny: she makes us laugh with her jokes and is the comedian at The Girls Center. In primary school she was a class leader and the top student in her class. She wants to be a Maasai doctor to inspire more girls in her community.

Diana was in Class 6 (6th grade) when her father died after a long, chronic illness. Her father had 3 wives and 8 children. Since her mother was her father's second wife, she and Diana were sent away from the family and family home. They rent a small room where they sleep and cook their meals. Diana's mother sells grocery bags at the local market.
