Life after Type 1 Diabetes 

The actress was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2009. She was just thirteen years old when she had to make some significant changes in her lifestyle. In an interview with Aharon Abhishek for Meaww, she said, “When I was first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, I felt very isolated and very sad.” She continued, “[being] separated from my family and all these people who were trying to be there for me but you just don’t understand that there’s this wall in your life, you don’t get this massive change that just happened in your life.”

She also mentioned how her condition made it harder for her to cope with her activities on the set of Cobra Kai. She noted, “The basic way I live my life is completely different. Eating is completely different. For instance, hot lights in the set bring my blood sugar down and if I am doing a scene, a bunch of martial art moves, I gotta be stuffing my face with snacks in between, all these things changed in my life.”
