About Me


A girl’s reflections, when a beautiful life collides with chronic disease. Is written, edited and almost always photographed by Pearlsa.

I am a Vancouver, BC based African-Canadian living with type 1 diabetes. I am a patient blogger, a passionate diabetes advocate, a photographer, a traveler, a writer, an analytical thinker, a storyteller, a picky foodie, and a gadget lover.

This blog is a recollection of my thoughts and opinions based on my experiences and issues that are of interest to me.
