Ashlynn is a proud JDRF youth ambassador and advocate for the type 1 diabetes community. She has met with her local MLA, the Assistant Pharmaceutical Minister, the Assistant Deputy Minister as well as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to share her story. In her spare time when she’s not advocating, she enjoys swimming, dirt biking, and making jewelry, and she hopes to work in an environment where she can help others facing challenging times. At Kids For A Cure Lobby Day 2020, she wants to share her experience with politicians to help them understand that funding for research is critical for kids like her to live a longer and happier life.
