My name is Carley and I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 18 years now. I look at this as an opportunity, not a set back. Diabetes is my opportunity to improve myself and prove to people that living happily with diabetes is possible. I never let the disease stop me – I played Volleyball, Basketball, and Softball in high school and now I am entering my final year of Nursing School. I have chosen a career path so I can “give back” to those who taught me so much and cared for me as a child newly diagnosed with diabetes and teach others that they can lead a happy, full life with Type 1 Diabetes.
How do you inspire others?
I try to inspire others simply by having a positive outlook on life, no matter the circumstance.
