“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.”

– Wayne Dyer

My Story

My name is Diana Osório. I was born in Hong Kong and raised in Macau until the age of 18, when I then decided to move to England to continue my studies and expand my horizons. Living in Macau, I was fortunate to have met people from different cultures and backgrounds, and as a result, learnt to speak three languages fluently: English, Portuguese and Cantonese.

This experience has influenced my mindset in respecting different values and customs significantly, which I find fascinating!

I graduated in Marketing in 2004 and a few years later, completed a post-graduate degree in Digital Marketing. I lived, studied and worked in the UK for nearly 8 years altogether. Having started my career there, four years later, in 2008, I relocated to Portugal and have been living here since then.

During the last 15 years of my career, I led exciting global projects for well-renowned companies in the financial and insurance sectors. I worked in different business units, namely Product, Marketing, Operations and Strategy, traveled a lot with work and met amazing people from different countries.

The desire to work on projects that would have a direct impact on people´s lives grew more and more, and in 2019, I made the decision to change my career path.

Since I can remember, dancing has always been a fundamental part of my life: a true passion! It always takes me to a place of happiness, serenity and connection.

My passion for dance started with ballet, at the age of 5, then Hip Hop and, for the past 10 years, Afro-Latin rhythm. Through dance, I feel alive and present and that I am living my Purpose.

In 2013, I began to explore, at greater length, this inner connection through mindfulness and yoga, which reinforced the importance and power of the link between body and mind in determining how I choose to live a life of purpose, meaning and fulfilment, whilst staying true to myself.
