I have been speaking about my personal experiences growing up living with a disability since I was in high school. I have been an invited guest speaker at universities, schools and special events. Through my Expressive Arts Production Company The Rainbow Butterfly Cafe I offer an innovative alternative to the traditional keynote address through my one woman shows and performance lectures.
WATCH YOUR HEAD Written by Lynda Rodriquez (www.ellesviews.com) Directed by Paul Kampf. A one woman show about an actress’s hilarious and heartbreaking journey of Re-Discovery and Self Acceptance following a brain hemorrhage . The performance can be followed by Q&A where she Diana shares her journey of living with cerebral palsy and how she has been resilient over adversity in achieving her dreams and goals.
