Ten years

The last decade with Diabetes has been a rite of passage for me.

Looking back, I have many people to thank -- family, friends and God.

I recently looked at an old picture of me from 2001 that happened to be in the Neighbors section of the Miami Herald. It was family night at McDonald's; the third grade class at Greynolds Park Elementary School.

May 6, 2011 marked 10 years with Juvenile Diabetes--a milestone within itself. Who knew that ten years later I would be writing for that very same section in The Miami Herald?

I have plenty to be thankful for; writing gives me a voice that encompasses my life. As the school year winds down, I am trying to land a top-tier internship in New York, as well as a couple journalism workshops.

Here is to 10 (and many) more healthy and prosperous years.
