Since I was a child I had a clear goal: the skating, making it not just a sport but a passion and a way of life, becoming a worthy representative of El Salvador.
Diana moved to Colombia in the 2005, to prepare for world championships. During 4 years he trained in the South American country but was not taken into account for any competition on a world scale, by the Salvadoran sports authorities during the 2004-2008.
These dreams turned into nightmares, The skater became unmotivated and decided to retire from the sport to dedicate full time to her family due to the physical and mental exhaustion she suffered.
The years went by, and Diana arrives again at the Skateboard by inspiration of her son, Matias, but he didn't resist the temptation and put his skates back on: “I started taking my son to skating classes because he wanted to start doing it, and during that month I started exercising and put on my skates again, and just as I started again I have 3 months and a half of skating "confessed silversmith.
The skater claims to be happy and aware that her return will not be easy; has to meet physical demands, although with work, effort and dedication does not rule out your dream: a global competition, while slowly building that road, but now next to her two children
