Diana Zhuromska was born in Rivne, Ukraine, and later moved to Kyiv, where she earned a master's degree in law with honours from Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.

During law school, Diana focused on gender equality and policies related to gender-based violence. Inspired by the challenge of addressing gender-based challenges in Ukraine, Diana founded LegalAid4Women, a non-profit that provides legal and psychological support to women who have been victims of violence.

Diana has spent the last two years as a Public Affairs Officer at the Israeli Embassy in Ukraine, where she coordinates international humanitarian projects and public-facing activities focused on gender equality, humanitarian aid, and sustainable development.

At the Blavatnik School of Government, Diana intends to investigate the humanitarian impact of Russia's invasion of Ukraine to develop new policies aimed at addressing violations of women's rights, and contributing to Ukraine's post-war reconstruction. 

Diana is an Oxford Graduate Scholar.
