Diahn’s undergrad journey began 36 years ago but took a turn as she took time off to enter the workforce and raise a family. Committed to continuous learning, Diahn chose to return to school as an adult learner to complete her degree. Diahn’s journey at Georgia State began in 2015, and she graduated in May 2019 with dual degrees in Business Administration and Nonprofit Leadership with honors distinction. While completing her degrees, Diahn served as a mentor to students, Executive Board member for the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA) and was active in several hospitality industry organizations.
“I’ve spent much of my life pouring myself out and supporting others, sacrificing relationships, social life, and my well-being, to take care of my daughter and family. I am excited to take time to invest in myself and focus on a future in an industry that I am extremely passionate about,” she shared.
Since childhood, Diahn has been fascinated with special events and the cultural trends of the hospitality industry. Working in professional sports fueled her desire to pursue a degree in hospitality administration. Diahn has an extensive background in special events and nonprofits with a passion to serve others, and completing a Robinson master’s degree will bring greater value to her personal brand.
Diahn continued, “I started my educational journey in 2009 with the desire to learn as much as possible, and upon receiving a bachelor’s degree, I knew I needed to go the extra mile to culminate my journey with a graduate degree.” She is confident that a master’s degree from the Regynald G. Washington Master of Global Hospitality Management program will serve to make her more competitive.
“I have no doubt that this program will prepare me with the tools needed to fulfill my career goals to become a successful global events manager and a hospitality trainer.”
