After graduating from high school, Russini enrolled at Goerge Mason University (Fairfax, Virginia campus) as a soccer walk on. Despite being her weakest sports, she was bent on proving to her friends that she’d make it at the Division 1 level. And she did as she rapidly improved to become the team’s starting striker by her sophomore year.

Russini didn’t abandon her interest in journalism though, after her soccer practices, she’d intern with some local radio stations. However, she remained unsettled on which one to focus more until the 2001, 9/11 attacks happened.

Dianna revealed in an interview with High School Sports that that was the moment she made up her mind to pursue journalism full time.

“I remember I used to watch this anchor named Robin Meade on CNN. And I loved her, just immediately, there was something about her. I remember talking to my teammates about it and I was like, ‘I think I want to do that,’ but I still wasn’t that sure. And then 9/11 happened…….After that, I knew I wanted to be a journalist.”
