    Hi fellow SMA fam,

    My name is Nikki, I’m 51 with type 2. Gosh, I’m just so excited to see our community lively and connected! We’ve come a long way and we are still shining! Anyway, a little about me, I’m a writer and songwriter/model/advocate. I’m an N.C.A.C. member for our community representing Los Angeles. Can’t wait to connect with ya’ll, catch up on old camp times (Cuyamaca here), or swap poster child stories (L.A. 1976-1978), and/or encourage each other through this SMA life.

    Thanks for letting me be a part of this

    Nikki 🙂

    Welcome, Nikki! We’re happy to have you here.

    Our community definitely has grown in recent years. Even in my lifetime, I’ve seen more adults and families connect, both at in-person conferences and online. It’s great to see.

    Let us know if you have any questions!

    Hi Nikki!  Welcome. I’m one of the moderators here, so feel free to reach out with any questions. We have a great community.  Please don’t hesitate to chime in or start a topic of your own.  Sounds like you keep busy. What do you like to write?  What genre of songwriting?
