My 12 years with diabetes has not been easy but it has definitely helped me become the person I am today! I am passionate about health and am currently going to college to become a nutritionist. I am aim to help others with type 1 diabetes and show that you can still live an amazing life. It has made me become so strong and really has become a part of who I am!
How do you inspire others?
I inspire others by not letting diabetes get in the way of my life! I live a completely normal life (besides the insulin injections and blood tests) but it has definitely become a part of who I am. I am passionate about healthy eating and exercise and am pursing a career as a nutritionist. Helping others gives me an amazing feeling and I can’t wait to help and inspire others with type 1 diabetes!
