Hi there, my name is Dia.
I left Los Angeles in late 2017 and have been traveling ever since. I began making videos to keep myself grounded, and since then it has turned into my dream career! Taking the leap to chase my dream was scary at first, but sharing my stories and adventures with you guys have been an amazing part of it.
I hope to continue making travel vlogs and valuable guides to help and inspire others. Would love to get to know ya! Drop a comment and say hi 🙂
