Executive Director of Beyond
Daniela Diamente believes in the capacity of all people, especially youth, to be healthy, engaged and good people. She has a Masters in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Arizona with a focus on youth development and education. She helped to build up the education program at BICAS (a bicycle recycling center) and launch Cyclovia Tucson for its first two inaugural events. She co-founded El Grupo (with a mission to empower youth through bicycles) with her husband Ignacio – who re-introduced her to the bicycle and the worlds that it opens. She stepped down after 15 years as the Executive Director in 2019 and completed a yearlong bicycle trip with her family. She likes to inspire movement, confidence and leadership in others. She loves to ride bikes and move every way you can, especially with her 13-year-old son. She is the business owner and co-leader of Tucson CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and a Certified Fletcher Pilates Instructor who teaches in the School of Dance at the University of Arizona. Favorite mantra: how you do anything is how you do everything.
