Hunger, homelessness, and inconsistent access to electricity were non-negotiable realities for me as a child. My mom — a full-time nurse with long hours and low pay — raised our family as a single parent.
I grew up in poverty. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 10, which meant that the cost of my healthcare was another necessity - it was also another monthly expense. I was hospitalized well over 2 dozen times before my 18th birthday. I only met my first endocrinologist as an adult. For kids and minorities who are facing chronic health issues, like my autoimmune disease, the uncertain ability to access or pay for basic needs is like a looming, dark cloud.
Dream In Color is my healing. We improve healthcare for all patients and make healthcare technology more efficient and impactful by focusing on the user experience. I was the person who couldn’t access basic healthcare technology. I was the patient of overwhelmed doctors and nurses. Without the support of my community (friends, family, teacher, and non-profits) I really believe I wouldn’t be alive today. Technology is the biggest game-changer for healthcare, and building communities. With innovative work being done in telehealth and on medical devices and dashboards, the possibilities are endless!
