Diana graduated from the University of Waterloo, Ontario with a Bachelors degree in Music, studying voice with Stephanie Kramer. Her musical journey began at age 5 as a member of the renowned Bach Children's Chorus of Toronto, moving on to the Kitchener/Waterloo Philharmonic Children's Choir with whom she sang and toured throughout North America and became a Teaching Assistant. She spent 2 summers at London's famed Pineapple Performing Arts School in Covent Garden, studying Voice, Drama and Music Theatre and attending workshops with the cast from leading West End shows. She was Production Assistant and backstage supervisor for shows in London and Canada and worked as Drama and Music coach for children's Summer programs in Ontario.
Diana's additional training in Psychology and Early Childhood Development, along with her studies focusing on children with special needs, has allowed her to work extensively with children with Autism and Cerebral Palsy.
She believes in the therapeutic value of music and is extremely grateful to the Foundation for inviting her to be a part of this project to work with the children in Guyana. She will be attending Niagara University in Buffalo, New York in January 2011 to complete her North American Teacher certification and her Masters in Education. She hopes to be back in Guyana in Summer 2011 and in the future to continue working with the Foundation. She would like to thank the Insanally family for giving her this opportunity to share in this wonderful tribute to Tina and including her in the planning stages of the Foundation's development.
