Brianna already knows what dog she will own upon moving to the White House when she becomes the President someday. Brianna is very passionate about her goals, and though she was diagnosed with T1D when she was a baby, she knows she has what it takes to succeed. For eight years, Brianna and her family have been amazing T1D advocates, and they have spoken at a wide variety of events to help educate people about T1D. She is also a talented artist, and her works hung in an art gallery in Texas. Brianna is excited to attend Children’s Congress this year, saying, “T1D research will help make my life easier and the lives of many, many others.”
