Garrett is extremely passionate about everything he does. He loves organized sports, and plays hockey, basketball, football, soccer, golf and is a swimmer. Garrett also enjoys reading and trying to correctly name every flag from every country. He’s most proud of when he made a game-winning save in soccer, and that he navigates school and T1D on his own. Garrett believes having T1D has made him a stronger person. He explains, “T1D has taught me many life lessons about resilience, diligence, hard work and perseverance.” Garrett is excited to attend Children’s Congress, and hopes that speaking with his representatives will help him achieve his dream of curing T1D.
