I’m an honor student in high school and spend most of my time at the soccer fields.
How do you inspire others?
I try to inspire people by proving limitations don’t really affect the things I do. In middle school I played football for my school’s team, and now I do travel soccer. Pretty soon, I’m going out of the country to go on a mission trip, so I like to remind people that just because some people think of disabilities as disadvantages, it only matters what you personally think.
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
Having diabetes has impacted me a lot mentally. It kind of opened my eyes to how misinformed people can be and all the stereotypes people give others. With these realizations, I now always try to get all the information I can on a subject before saying anything that could hurt others.
