Eventually following the footsteps of her mother (a ballerina), she took ballet lessons. She took classes a Manhattan studio during her middle school and high school years.

Sexual Violation (Inauguration Day 2017)
On January 20, 2017, Donald Trump's Inauguration Day, it was reported that DiGiovine was violated by a passerby. The person was described to be a Trump supporter in his late 30's; witnesses said he was wearing a 'Make America Great Again' hat.
As she was concluding an interview with a group of people watching Trump's introduction to presidency, the man in question stroked his hand across her face, neck, and arm, which lasted for about 10 seconds; he complimented her with a “beautiful” and walked away.
During this interaction, Digiovine froze and waited until he departed. A friend asked her if she was okay. She replied, “It’s fine, it happens often.”
