~ welcome to my (new & improved) blog!! This has been a work in progress, creating a space I love and that I can share with all of you was important to me. I hope this space is a place where you feel inspired and brings a smile to your face!
Blogging is a passion of mine ~ I love sharing ideas and tips and tricks about everything: life, health, exercise, diabetes, beauty, and advocacy. I want to incorporate everything I love and share it on a platform with everyone to follow along with me!
As I’ve delved into social media (follow me on instagram HERE) over the past couple of years, I’ve realized there is so much I want to share with everyone, and there are so many parts of life that interest me. I cannot wait to hit the ground running with all the ideas I’ve been saving to write about.
If you’re new to knowing me, my name is Basma! I am a diabetes advocate and social media/content creator. I love everything health & lifestyle, sharing low-carb recipes & foods, beauty & fashion, and of course, my journey living with type one diabetes.
I have been living with type one diabetes for 18.5 years, and have been a public speaker since the age of 10! I have worked with the American Diabetes Association (ADA), the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), and the Safe at School program, have traveled the US speaking on the importance of advocacy, diabetes legislation, and insulin transparency with people of all ages, and have been to Congress multiple times as well as planned home-state congressional meetings with our local congressmen and women. Advocacy is one of my many loves, and sharing my voice in the diabetic community brings me such joy in life. I always say, together we’ll go from type one to type none!
I can’t wait to go on this journey with ALL of you, and I truly thank you for reading and coming along! As always, please leave me a comment and let me know what you’re looking forward to hearing from me and if there’s something specific you’d like to see! Let’s show LIFE who’s BOSS!! ❤
