I am 17 years old and live in Texas just south of Waco. I have been a type-1 diabetic since I was a 23-month-old baby. I love MX! I want everyone to know that diabetes does not have to stop you from living your dream! I can ride and I can win!
I hope to place in all my races and promote diabetes awareness when I ride! I hope to touch the lives of others with diabetes, especially kids, to let them know they can still live their dream even though they have diabetes. I hope to do alot of media spots with Animas/Johnson and Johnson corporation to promote diabetes awareness as well as motocross. There are just not enough girls in this sport!
Yesterday's race was awesome. I ride an 85 and passed up a 125 to win 1st!
