I’m 19 and I’m a Firefighter. I’ve been in the Fire Service for Six years. I was diagnosed with diabetes on thanksgiving one year after I joined the fire service. Diabetes hasn’t stopped me from pursuing my dream to be a career firefighter. It has only made me stronger.
How do you inspire others?
I inspire others by risking my life to save strangers. I show how I never let my diabetes over come me but let it make me who I am today. It molded me into being a first responder to those in need and help share my experiences with others.
