Calling All CWD Teens!
Hi, my name is Clare Rosenfeld, I am 16 years old and have had Type 1 diabetes for 9 years. I may have met many of you at the CWD conferences in Orlando and Pasadena and hope to see you at our upcoming regional conferences or at our next annual conference in Orlando in July 2003.
As the former National Youth Advocate for the American Diabetes Association, I am not new to Diabetes Advocacy. I am however new to Advocacy on an International level. After meeting so many great young people from all over the world, and corresponding with kids with diabetes worldwide, I realize we need a central organization to work together towards our dream of a world without diabetes. CWD is just that organization!
It is my dream to create the International Diabetes Youth Ambassadors, a group open to all young people worldwide who desire to make positive change in the lives of people with diabetes, as well as help find a cure for diabetes. CWD offers us a unique opportunity to share information about how diabetes is handled around the world. While much of this information is already shared through the outstanding educational information offered on the CWD site, this on-line group will give kids a chance to communicate as a team. Our focus will be on educating each other and acting as a support network and inspiration for those kids who might want to get involved, but don't know where to start.
I believe that one person can make a difference and together we can change the world! Please join me in the ground breaking development of this group. I encourage you to write in, share your story and join us! Also, please share your ideas and comments on how we can make this a truly inspiring and powerful group dedicated to making positive change for all people with diabetes.
Dreaming, Learning, Doing,
Diabetes Youth Ambassador
