Traveler Bio

Hi there! My name is Diana Mora and I am from Providence, Rhode Island. My family is from Mexico, so growing up, my culture has played a big role in my life. I am a senior at Providence College, where I am majoring in global studies and health policy and management, with a minor in public and community service studies.

This past semester I had the opportunity to study abroad in Delhi, India and visit Cape Town, South Africa. I met amazing people and got to experience and learn so many new things. I was especially fortunate to meet people along the way who opened me up to new experiences and challenged me to be curious about everything I saw. My studies were cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but I still had the best time. I cannot wait to re-live this experience with you. Let's explore how people all around the world are different--yet still very much the same to you and I.
