Different Cities, Different People, Constant Fulfillment

I did not expect the amount of diversity in cities I would experience. Each city had its own culture and people. They ranged from metropolitan to poverty. One city would have a majority of people that were well educated on diabetes and the next would have very little education. This forced us to adapt daily to the level of education already implemented in the area. The ages of people ranged from literally 0 to 100, also forcing us to find ways to engage a ten year old at the same time as a seventy year old. The group that focused on exercise would manage to pull an extreme amount of energy out of the adults and have them kicking a soccer ball around with all the kids. The collaboration of the variety of ages was an inspirational sight. People of all backgrounds and ages were coming together to educate and empower those living with diabetes. Each day was a different challenge. I left each city feeling a different type of fulfillment and accomplishment.
