She studied ballet, in the footsteps of her mother who was a dancer. Diana graduated at the top of her class.
At Bucknell University, Diana studied languages and became proficient in French and Russian Languages. While at Bucknell, Diana was a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority.
She met Chris Rojahn at Bucknell and they married after graduation. Diana and Chris traveled to the western region of what was then the Soviet Union as part of a group of American scientists and spouses. Many Soviets spoke English and Diana was the only American who spoke Russian. She ended up being an ambassador for the USA in a dry desert town in the USSR.
