Diana Duzbayeva is from Almaty, the former capital of Kazakhstan. She graduated from the Kazakh Leading Academy of Architecture and Civil Engineering as an environmental economist.
Six years ago, she moved to Canada and went through major cultural and social shock. Now, Canada has become her second home because of it’s cultural variety and immense hospitality. Diana’s appreciation of the Canadian Multicultural policy has led her to explore and contribute to this important social sector. As a result, she volunteered as an assistant English teacher for the Immigrant Women’s Association.
Winning an award in the International Antique Photo Parlour Contest made Diana determined to pursue photography as her livelihood. She chose MacEwan’s Design & Photography program.
As a recent graduate, Diana’s main career goal is to become a documentary photographer and explore and advocate for ethno-cultural communities in Canada and throughout the world. She strongly believes that multiculturalism is beneficial to any society and brings a rich diversity to Canada.
