Hi! I am Diana and I am a queer Biomedical Scientist. I was born and raised in Mexico City. After getting my bachelor’s degree, I moved to the Netherlands to pursue a master’s in Biomedical Sciences. The two years I spent there really had an impact on me, both academically and personally. Living in such an accepting society made me embrace my queerness, be proud of who I am, and at the same time, helped me navigate confidently throughout my academic career because I stopped wasting time repressing myself and became more productive. During my PhD I studied the transport of proteins within neurons and became fascinated by this complex process. Now, even though I am outside the academic world I still advocate for sustainable leadership in science and inclusion within academia
