Dayana Aleksandrova

Pushing the limits of her Bulgarian passport, Dayana (pronounced Diana) broke out of her shell and moved across the globe at age 16 as an exchange student. Winning a few academic scholarships allowed her to receive all of her education in the United States, revolving mostly around world politics and dead Greek philosophers. She's traveled extensively through Scandinavia and Eastern Europe and lived in Barcelona, where she spent all her money on jamón ibérico. After quitting 3 corporate jobs in the span of one year, she bought a 1 way ticket to Bali where she will teach English. Diana is an author, photographer and occasionally a guest star in music videos and indie movies. Her interests include cheese, exotic monkeys and sunsets. You can read more of her work here.
