I know I have not made a post in a couple of months but I have been BUSY! Many things have been happening and have happened!
Earlier this year I interned for the American Diabetes Association (ADA). It was an AMAZING experience! I was able to work on the Tour De Cure which happened in June. I actually made a really good friend, Essence who also interned with me. I learned a lot from it and I am so thankful that I was able to do work for ADA.
Also in June I turned the BIG 20!! FINALLY not a teenager anymore (haha). Still an awkward age but happy to say that I am officially an adult. For some reason I do feel way older than my age...
In the summer I worked two jobs which was fun and tiring! I worked and still work at Hallmark (almost 4 years with them..) and then I was a nanny for a 9 year old diabetic boy. He is such a joy to be around and I LOVE that family! It is an awesome feeling knowing that his mom can trust me and know that I can really take care of him and know what to do when he is either low or high. He is like my little brother and even though we did get a little annoyed with each other (when our blood sugars were both high) it was an amazing and fun summer with him! :)
I also went to diabetes camp this year! I was with the 10 year old girls and two of them I had for the third time! That was a fun and TIRING week for sure. Sleepless and long nights but so worth it!
Now since school has started I am now in my third year in college at UC. I only have 3 more semesters and then I graduate! This semester I am getting the chance to intern at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). I am more than excited to do some work for them! I am beyond blessed that I am getting all these opportunities before I graduate. I really can't wait to see where life will take me after these 3 semesters.
So over all this year has been great and I really can't wait to see what else will happen this year! I hope that you all are doing well and that everything is going good!
