Dina grew up in an environment that constantly encouraged curiosity and learning and was exposed to world history and culture from a young age. Among Dina’s favorite memories of her childhood are trips with her mother to museums, archeological sites, and historic cities around the world. Visits to old Cairo and the pyramids of Giza first sparked her fascination with the past.
Dina brings a wealth of experience in a variety of fields, including education. Since moving to the United States in 2014, Dina expanded her knowledge of American history and gained experience in the museum field through volunteering and working at several Virginia museums, having most recently held a position at George Washington’s Mount Vernon. Dina believes in the crucial role museums play in educating the public, particularly younger generations, about the past and its relevance.
