“The Sweet Arts” Interview

536620_356031191120684_1029180488_n

As you all know my youngest sister Ana has type 1 diabetes (got it the same year I did).  She has been an artist since I’ve known her (and I’ve known her since she was born).  Her personality seems to fit the stereotype for an artist (except she’s really good at math).  She is extremely kind, non-judgmental, very “live and let live”, quiet and observant, and has a wonderful eclectic style.  Her bedroom looks like art, fashion, quotes, and a rainbow all blew up in it.  Every time I go in there my face probably resembles a child’s at Disney World.

She was interviewed for Sanofi’s new diabetes website, thedx.com.  The article is about how people with diabetes, Ana being one of them, are using art to express their emotions and reach out to others.  It’s a great post and we’d be honored if you read it :)

By the way, Diabetes Art Day is fast approaching.  Look out for the upcoming post on how you can participate and support this creative initiative!

As most of you know, the illustrator of the site is my youngest sister Ana, who has had type 1 diabetes for 18 years now.  She is a Junior at James Madison University studying studio art.  Ana is wondering if we, the DOC could help her out for an art project involving diabetes advocacy.  She needs:

-One statement describing one of the hardest things about living with diabetes.

-One statement describing something positive that diabetes has taught you.

-Years with diabetes or how diabetes affects you (if you don’t have it yourself).

-Indicate if you would like your statements to be anonymous, no last name, etc.

-Handwritten would be great but not required!

Send to:

Ana Morales/  802 Orlando Ct. /   Roanoke VA, 24019

Also, if you don’t want to hand write and mail, then email your statements to:  moraleam@dukes.jmu.edu   so that Ana can print them out and compile.

Let’s help Ana tell the world a little about diabetes through art!

XOXO
