Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Diya began her walk with Jesus when she was ten years old. She moved to Gainesville in 2015 to pursue a degree in Business Administration, with eventual aspirations to attend medical school. She began attending Greenhouse during her freshman year and it greatly impacted her desire to live passionately for Jesus and in community. Diya is eager to see children and their families radically changed by Christ so that they may be able to live in faith. In her free time she enjoys hanging with friends, reading, and eating ice cream.
