Scrabble Player Profile: Diana Bowen

bowenDiana Bowen, who is playing in her fourth Nationals this year, started playing Scrabble when she was growing up. She and her mom would record their high scores on the inside of the box. Her highest was 503 and she still has the box lid!

Diana’s other skills include doing math, growing watermelons, playing Dr. Mario, and swiping right. She also appreciates good puns, especially with countries: “I’m mad a gas car still exists,” quips Diana. She enjoys outdoor activities, such as camping, hiking, and mountain biking. Her nickname is “The Joker,” and if you’d like to know why, just ask to see her driver’s license picture.
