Diyonne's sense of community from an early age growing up in Memphis, Tennessee has played a pivotal role in who she is today. Relocating to Gainesville 30 years ago upon receiving her B.S. in Business Administration from Florida A&M University, Diyonne has become a recognizable and consistent voice for justice and equality for the youth and the disenfranchised in Alachua County.
