Sarah is a motivated young woman who seizes every opportunity to benefit her community. She stays busy outside of school through basketball, soccer, art and drama. Sarah likes to draw and make bracelets, and has even sold her artwork and jewelry to raise money for T1D research. After she was diagnosed with T1D at age 4, her family became involved with the JDRF One Walk program, and her parents and aunts raised funds for JDRF through various Team JDRF events. Sarah is excited to advocate for the T1D community at Children’s Congress because she believes “people with T1D deserve everything they need to live their lives, and improve their day-to-day experiences.
