Kalli is a talented dancer who travels around the country participating in competitions as a member of a competitive dance team at Styles Dance Centre. She also enjoys working at a gymnastics studio where she helps kids learn new skills and develop their inner strength. Kalli knows a lot about inner strength, because she has lived with T1D since she was just two years old. She has recently been an ambassador at several JDRF events, mentored newly diagnosed people with T1D, and now is excited to attend Children’s Congress. Kalli explains, “In the past two years it has really been on my heart to advocate for not only people with T1D, but the rights for all people diagnosed with diseases beyond their control.”
