I’m a junior in high school and I enjoy the drama department and choir. I play 3 instruments and spend a lot of my time writing music. Being diagnosed has given me a new outlook on life and opened me up to so many amazing people like the people on this page, it’s also allowed me to create beautiful music about a not so beautiful disease.
What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
Once I was asked if I had to take my injections
I responded by just laughing and saying
“Well I mean. I could stop… But then I’d die”
And they responded to that with
“Oh. That wouldn’t be fun”
Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
Someone once told me I couldn’t eat a piece of chocolate, so I took it out of their hand and ate it… It was worth the high later.
How do you inspire others?
I stay positive and I always try to educate others and I encourage people to ask questions even if they sound ridiculous.
Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
Diabetes has helped me crest so many inspiring words out of music.
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
It’s definitely made me stronger
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
One horse sized duck of course
