Hello my name is Jack and I’ve been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes for a little over 15 years now. I’m a happy and healthy 18 year old who attends college and lives life to the fullest. I enjoy acting, working out, and traveling. I’m always looking for new adventures so as of this coming September I’ll be studying abroad in London! I’m incredibly excited and I can’t wait to once again show myself that Diabetes will never stop me from living life the way I want to.
What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
The weirdest question I have ever received was, “Is Diabetes contagious?” My answer was “I guess you’re going to have to shake my hand to find out.”
How do you inspire others?
I try to inspire other Diabetics by showing people that it’s okay to be Diabetic. Some days are tougher than others, but there are many more days that are meant to be lived happy and proud.
