Nicholas, or Nick as everyone calls him, has been living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) for 2 years and have been involved with JDRF as a youth ambassador since. He is passionate about raising awareness of T1D through public speaking and teaching his classmates the science behind the disease. During his free time, Nick enjoys playing baseball in the summer and he is looking to pursue a career in psychology or criminology. For Nick, a cure would mean having his old life back, and being able to go out with his friends without having to think about what will happen or needing to bring all his supplies with him.
