In a series of 12 episodes, Podder Talk is featuring interviews between professional snowboarder Sean Busby and inspirational people in the diabetes community. In the fifth episode, Sean interviews Milly Yates, a 14-year-old athlete from Australia who hasn’t let type 1 diabetes stop her from following her dreams. 

Milly Yates was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age eight, but that hasn’t stopped her from becoming a successful snowboarder and a top basketball player. A snowboarder since the age of five, Milly was determined to continue pursuing her passions after she was diagnosed, refusing to let type 1 diabetes stop her from doing the things she loves. Milly, who is also a certified scuba diver, wants to encourage other people to follow their dreams and to never let diabetes restrict what they accomplish in life.
