Hi. My name is Ali and I have type 1 diabetes. I am now a registered nurse and just about to write my certified diabetes educator exam, as I work in a high acuity adult diabetes centre. I have an omnipod and dexcom g4 and love swapping stories and advice with others who have diabetes!!
How do you inspire others?
Staying positive and motivated, always learning, and helping others personally and through my job!
Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
I struggled in high school, however, learned as I matured and grew that it was a part of me and not something to try to hide but to take hold of and embrace.I also hope to have a beautiful baby one day in the future and want to be as healthy as possible for my child and use this as motivation.
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
1 horse sized duck!
