Diana Aqra

I am a curious traveler with roots in the Middle East. I was born and raised in the United States, but will always have a connection to Palestine and the Greater Middle East.

Currently, I study at the University of Denver for International Relations and Communication and traveling to Jordan as an independent journalist and to study Arabic.

I am always changing, but some things remain – my love for the outdoors, my love of learning, peace, and solitude.
