Amelia is only 15 and one of 150 type 1 children chosen to go to Washington. She was one of only two who actually shared with Congress what it's like to live with diabetes. She listed her highlights of the trip with some photos here: http://diatribe.org/what-did-15-year-old-amel...

One of the neatest things she talked about was meeting celebrities who achieved amazing life goals as diabetics. She got to wear Miss America's crown…what young girl would not be thrilled. It's a great story. Enjoy.

I just fell in love with her, her attitude and her smile. I hope she does well and continues to use the advocate voice she found on this trip.
