Diana is a Texas transplant with business acumen and a heart for community service. Having chosen to make Arlington her home nearly a decade ago, Diana will bring both years of experience and a fresh perspective to the City Council to help ensure the City government works for all Arlington residents! She will strive to serve with equity, empathy, and action as her guiding principles.
The granddaughter of Palestinian refugees, Diana is a first-generation Palestinian American with strength and resilience in her DNA. As the eldest of five siblings, Diana assumed the role of interpreter, negotiator, and healthcare advocate for her family at a very young age. This experience taught Diana the importance of showing up for those you love with empathy and commitment. She is the embodiment of the promise America holds, and her background inspires her work to extend opportunities to succeed in Arlington, where Diana chose to move after college. Access to quality education with adequate preparation for college and the workforce has been critical in helping Diana’s whole family achieve their dreams, and she wants to make this a reality for all Arlington families.
