In her free time, Dayna enjoys delving into video games, reading manga and most importantly being around her family. She approaches life with an open heart and can always zealously be heard saying: "I only have one shot at this life, sadly when my time is up I'm not going to be around to regret the chances and opportunities I didn't take while I was alive. So why not just go for it and see what happens? I'll probably fail more than I'll succeed, but at least I'm trying to squeeze everything that I can out of life. I won't be retiring from the dinner table with an untouched plate, put it that way."
