Besides being a type 1 diabetic I’m a commercial manager of the professional basketball team Stella Artois Leuven Bears. Basketball, sneakers, and food are my greatest passions. I’m also a participant in Married At First Sight 2021 Belgium.
I am from Boston, Massachusetts but I have lived in Mexico since 1998. I am a preschool teacher. I didn’t grow up with my diabetes. Emotionally it was much harder than financially. I went from being an active woman to a shell of myself.
Toujeo insulin is a type of insulin that has been approved by the FDA. It can be used as a treatment for type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Toujeo provides better control for people with diabetes, while also reducing their risk for high and low blood sugars.
I’m living with my girlfriend, her two kids and our 2 dogs in a house near Stuttgart. I’m working as a social worker since 25 years. In my job, I try to help kids and families to get along with their problems and difficult situations. In my free time I make german rap music since 1991. I work with kids and some young refugees from Syria and Afghanistan to create their own hiphop music.
I was born and raised in South Carolina. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on January 13th 1988, attended college in North Carolina, was a golf professional for 10 years, got married to my now husband in July 2013 and I am in the process of adopting 2 kids through our local County Agency. We live on just over 4 acres in Woodstock, Georgia, participate in our local community in several ways and attend church at Ebenezer UMC.
I was diagnosed when I was 15 years old. I didn’t hide my diabetes but also didn’t grow up with it. It was mostly emotional and realizing I was going to have a disease with me the rest of my life. I had planned to join the military. It was my dream that was taken away from me by diabetes and it put me in a very dark place for most of high school.
