According to an interview with Times Entertainment, Divita describes her personality as adaptive because growing up she had to change six schools, travel and live in several cities across the country. Her motto in life is “not to fear change, embrace life and live every moment to the full”.

The Miss Diva Universe 2022 wants to make education accessible to everyone, and her inspiration comes from her father. “My father exploited his [education] power to get out of her financial situation and empower herself to earn and support her family,” she told the publication.
