  • beyondtype1Meet @jesseypete2 "I work at Camp Nejeda, a summer camp for children with Type 1 diabetes! Being a counselor for the past three years has been one of the most rewarding experiences, for it has allowed me to give back to the place that forever changed my life when I was diagnosed at the age of 15. I now have a strong support system of friends who are fighting the same battle as me, and have done my best to pass some of my experience and knowledge onto my campers. My name is Jessica and this is how I live beyond!"

  • kerilynpollockThat's awesome! Where is nejeda? We live in Hawaii
  • racheloliuSo proud of my best friend @jesseypete2!! I'm a non-diabetic but visiting Nejeda even I could see just how special it is. Before I met Jess I didn't know much about type 1 and I think that goes to show how most people probably have misconceptions about it. Seeing kids play at the camp was heartwarming. They were able to just be kids and be with friends that knew exactly what it feels like to have highs and lows. I see everyday how her friends and campers have changed Jess' life and it's so beautiful💚
