In our very candid chat, she shares the pain of losing her first born child and the breakdown of her marriage including what it was like trying to reinvent herself after leaving the farm and becoming a single mum. In 2016, Diana was awarded an Order of Australia Medal for her work as the CEO of Care for Africa which helps fight poverty and provides water, health, education and enterprise for one of the world's poorest countries.
