Harold M. Brathwaite Secondary School

I am 16 years old and am a part of the international baccalaureate program. Over the last couple of years participating in SAADAP and YHAC has furthered my knowledge on a number of topics concerning diabetes. I now crave a deeper and greater understanding of not only diabetes but many other diseases people struggle with. My goal in life is to help those who may need it and to give back to the wonderful community and world we live in!

I am grateful for this experience and everything that it taught me.
