I’m a sophomore at college and I’m majoring in General Biology with a minor in Human Biology. I have two dogs which I love and I’m a vegetarian. I’m the youngest sibling out of five and I love spending time with my family. I grew up with diabetes since I was 11 when I was diagnosed. I didn’t hide it, everyone I know knows that I have T1D, and I think that the people I know are understanding it and it really helped me. Especially when they ask questions to understand better and try to help me.

I DON’T like lobstahhh. Ekkk, I think they look like giant beetles. BUT, they are a free food! I don’t remember life without diabetes. I was diagnosed when I was four years old. I am living a life fueled by insulin and design. I am a university student where I am majoring in fine arts, and double minoring in business and graphic design! When I am not hitting the books or picking up a paint brush I am running my instagram blog @t1Design_, getting a cup of coffee or going for a run!

I was diagnosed just after my 21st birthday. I had been sick for years and doctors did not pick up on me having diabetes, until after my 21st I said; “enough is enough”. I went back for more checks and I finally was diagnosed. It felt like a long time coming. I had actually suspected I had it 2 years before I was diagnosed. I was studying pharmacy at the time and was doing an assignment on diabetes when I noticed the symptoms were very similar to what I was feeling.
