Diana holds the LLB in Criminal Law, and LLM in EU Public Law and Human Rights. Diana has Ukrainian and Syrian roots. Born and raised in Kyiv, Ukraine, she is currently located in Beirut, Lebanon, for her Arabic language studies.

“My role in most projects is sending an impulse: connecting the right people; helping people find the right resources to achieve their goals; inspiring them to see bigger opportunities; managing them to be able to achieve those goals. One of the ways to do this can be done through connecting Ukrainian social initiatives who can benefit from some foreign expertise, and international volunteers eager to help Ukraine. This is the project I will be working on within the EaP Civil Society Fellowship. There’s huge potential in this — from actual work tasks being done, to intercultural connections and friendships built.”- Diana Daiub
