In gearing up for this epic Unicorn episode I sincerely pondered the impact becoming a diabetes advocate has had on my life. Two of the first people I discovered were Kerri Sparling and Scott Johnson. I had found my people and reading their stories, watching them present at various conferences gave me the courage to “really” find my voice. The podcast and past blog posts have lifted a huge weight, one I didn’t know was sitting on my shoulders, and has connected me with people from across the globe who speak my language. I am truly blessed.
