My name is Kelsey, and I am a type one diabetic. I am also a film student at Loyola Marymount University. For my junior thesis film, I would like to create a 10 minute documentary that brings more awareness to type one diabetes. My project will examine the life of someone living with type one diabetes and the stuggles associated with the disease. Unfortunately, I do not know any other type one diabetics. I've posted this, because I am looking for a type one diabetic in the LA area who has an interesting story to share and would like to be a part of this film. If you are interested or know of anyone who might be interested, please message me, and I will send you more information.
Thank you!
