Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
Yes, a ton of people thought I couldn’t eat sweets at all but with some insulin I showed them all that I can eat everything I use to!!!

How do you inspire others?
I inspire others by not letting my head down once!! I look at diabetes as and opportunity to become a stronger individual!!

How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
Diabetes has honestly changed my perspective in a lot of different things!! It made me a more open minded person and overall full of joy to still be here!! Physically since I am an athlete I have lost some weight with it as my body is now adjusting to a 60 carb diet instead of shoving food in my mouth!

Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
OOOOOO! Interesting question but I would like to fight the one horse sized duck because even though it would be a challenge I believe I can do it. I mean just listen to me for a sec…think about it…diabetes is kind of like this big horsed duck right…I mean whenever you have an ear ache or the flu those are the little ducks right..I mean cause when your sick you gotta deal with this and that but you got the pills that will take the pain away. There is no cure for diabetes yet…but that doesn’t stop us from taking on this challenge with our head up…Yes, this is like the one horse sized duck…but I promise when its all said and done…it will be worth all the fighting we did:)
