Tell us more about you (optional)
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when I was 7 years old, two days before the tragic events of 9/11. Although it is much of a blur now, I will always remember the devastation Diabetes brought to my family and how 9/11 changed our whole perspective on what we thought was the end of the world! Eleven years later, I am a freshman at Wofford College and am absolutely loving life! I do everything that I want to and hope to really make a difference in the Diabetes world, at this point in my life with my blog (Who Needs Beta Cells) that I have recently designed as part of project for a scholarship program I am in, and hopefully in the future with taking part in research or pediatric endocrinology!
