Daya believes that it doesn’t matter where you come from, but where you want to be. Her platform “education and professional development for women” is a reflection of her beliefs and values. She is a member of various organizations such as The Jessie Banks Foundation, Franklin Lakes Education Foundation, LADDER foundation and is launching her own woman’s education foundation “Daya Burton Hope Foundation”. Her goal is to provide guidance, coaching, education, scholarships and career opportunities for women of all ages; especially those from underrepresented communities.
These days, she doesn’t have as much time to travel as she would like, but Daya loves traveling the world any time she can. A woman of many talents, she likes to use her spare time to help family and friends with interior design work in their homes.
