About the Author

Lala Jackson has been navigating the world of being an over-achieving go-getter who lives with chronic disease since she was 10 years old and diagnosed with autoimmune type 1 diabetes. She uses two machines - an insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor, both of which are attached to her body 24/7 - to keep herself alive. However, chronic disease doesn't run her life. She loves adventures, always has more than a few projects in the works, and doesn't know how to do much of anything halfway. When not speaking or writing, Lala lives in Brooklyn, does work for a non-profit with a mission to cure type 1 diabetes, and loves traveling to literally anywhere with a swimmable beach, whipping up a paleo concoction, attempting to not fall over in yoga, throwing paint on a canvas, or flat out sleeping. Because knowing when to rest is everything. She grew up between Hawaii and Washington State, graduated from the University of Miami in Florida with a communications degree, has a heart for all things multicultural, and is obsessed with recognizing all of us who are beyond powerful - because chasing dreams while living with chronic disease is no small task. She's also a Gryffindor. For more information, visit For speaking and writing inquiries, or for any other questions, email at
