Who is Diya (디야) and About?

1468763_10151757291176570_1746529767_nDiya (Diya on Korea) is a Koreanphile after having being exposed to the culture and the food from her friends she met in the UK. She has been to Korea seven  times so far, starting with her journey in April 2007  and more recently in 2018. She fell deep in love with the tradition and history of Korea. Having been born in India and living briefly in the States and Hong Kong she identifies with similar threads of the culture and often finds herself making comparisons between India and Korea. Although having spent most of her life in the U.K., she considers her outlook on life to be multicultural.  She spends most of her time reading,  cartooning, writing and staring at cloud formations in the sky.
