"On the day I was diagnosed, before we went to the hospital, my father bought me a donut because he thought I could never eat sugar again.

I love diabetes camp because I can escape from home and be with people just like me.

My piece of advice is to learn how to do shots yourself because it's weird having strangers (nurses) at school, doing it for you."
