Young Leaders from Grenada
I am 21 years old Livingston Horald Martin Fraser from Grenada, West Indies. I live in the small village of La Mode St.George’s close to the south of the island. I was born on November 9th 1991. I am a type 1 diabetic. I am a teacher at one of the best high schools in Grenada (The Anglican High School), I teach Chemistry and integrated science. Also I am a musician I play mainly the piano and bass guitar; I am the leader of a Gospel Band. I attained an Associate Degree in Natural Science at the T.A. Marryshow Community College. One of my main goals in Life is become a Doctor in Medicine.
In Grade 5 I was experiencing frequent urination, thirst and extreme hunger, I use to ask the teacher to leave the class regularly to go to the washroom or to go to the tap, eventually she got fed up and she tested my glucose level, note she was a type 2 diabetic, my glucose level was 400+ mg/dl, she immediately she called my parents so I could be sent to the pediatrician. Well I was diagnosed by the pediatrician that same day. I was ten years at that time and I lived with type 1 diabetes from then on.
