I got diabetes about a month ago. I was drinking a lot and using the bathroom frequently. I didn’t know what was going on and my mom took me to get a check up because of my symptoms. They checked my blood sugar it was so high that they sent me to the hospital and it was over 700. I am still working on it and getting adjusted but I know GOD is with me and He will give me strength to do anything!

What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
People tell me “you’re not big or anything!” I had to explain that type 1 had nothing to do about my weight.
How do you inspire others?
Well my little brother who is 6 has type 1 diabetes and he is glad we can talk about it together.

Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
I have a hard time getting my strength back. “Its been high and low and it can affect my confidence.

How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
Yes, I know God gave me this for a reason and He would not give me anything I couldn’t handle.
