With Zara’s father being medical professional, you could say it was likely that her destiny would be to follow their footsteps. However, her path slightly differs from her parents.
Meet Dental Surgeon Dr. Zara Nortley.
“My situation is unique as my father is a doctor and noticed my symptoms very early. Despite having lived with diabetes for most of my life, I find it difficult to manage at times; it’s a condition that requires constant input, and even though I know the consequences of poor management, I find that other aspects of my life seem to take priority. Through pageantry, I discovered the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and in supporting them, and it has put my condition more to the forefront of my mind. I want to use my platform to encourage and inspire others, and I can’t do that unless I take control of my own!”
