What’s your story (what grade are you in, bday, family, tell us about life with JDRF?)
My name is Maia. I am seven years old and my birthday is February 26. I am in 1st grade at Robert Louis Stevenson Elementary in Grandview. My Mama’s name is Jennie and my Dada’s name is Clay. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on March 15, 2016. My diabetes is not fun, but I get to have ice cream sandwiches before bed if my blood sugar is low!
My favorite colors are pink, purple, green, blue, and orange.
Fave thing to do after school?
My favorite thing to do after school is walk to the playground by my school. I can see my friends that I go to school with!
I have played soccer, and practicing karate. I also like basketball and softball. I also like volleyball and tennis.
I like the Browns because my Mama and my Grandpa Eric love that team. I am also going to my first Major League Baseball game this weekend to see the Indians!
Are you a Belieber?
What is Belieber?
1D or 5SOS?
I don’t know who those bands are. But I like listening to Ray Charles and Disney music.
What do you wanna be when you grow up?
I want to be a singer, and a swimmer when I’m a teenager. But when I am an adult I want to work at a music shop.
Who’s your role model?
Half my Mama, half my Dada.
Pizza, rice cakes with peanut butter, sugar free Popsicles, and pudding.
You just won a million dollars—what do you do with it?
I would buy a thousand gifts for my family and take my friends on a vacation when I get bigger.
