I am Trinity Noelle. I am a KIDabetic who lives by the saying, “Trinity can!” When I was first diagnosed, the hospital stay was hard. All of the changes in my life was hard. But I knew that I was still the same strong person I was before my diagnosis. A gymnast, a dancer, an actress, a model, a singer, an artist…none of that has changed. The only thing that had to change was the addition of the cute purse (I included a photo of me carrying my favorite blue purse/kit in the picture below) that I had to carry around that held my life saving items. Ok, the changes were more than that. Checking my blood sugar at least 10 times a day, sticking needles in my arm, legs and booty for insulin, counting carbs and endless blood tests at the hospital. All of that could have kept me down, but I chose to see the positive side of things. I couldn’t change the fact that I had Diabetes but I could try to make a positive difference. I wrote a book with my aunt. I co-founded a foundation with my sister called, KIDabetic. Which she used as her platform as Miss San Diego Teen. I am a level 6 gymnast with my goal to be a collegiate gymnast at UCLA. So you see, I have diabetes but that’s not gonna stop me from reaching my dreams. Because…Trinity can!
What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
Does getting a shot hurt? I laugh now when people ask me this question. Of course it hurts 🙂 I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it.
How do you inspire others?
I eat very healthy. But I also love sweets. I tell everyone, if you eat healthy then you can have a sweet treat. But most people I know don’t need a shot of insulin when they do 😉
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
My mom would hate his question because she is scared of birds. I don’t know why, but I think maybe 100 regular ducks.
