At the age of 17, born and raised in the Philippines, Ms. Diamond received a Rotary Club scholarship to study at a high school in Oxford, NY for a year. She immersed in American culture. Her dream to explore beautiful cities in the United States and other countries and meet people from different cultures, helped solidify her interest in the travel industry.

Ms. Diamond has since furthered her knowledge of the field to become recognized as a certified travel consultant, as well as an accredited travel agent through the International Air Transport Association.
