She's a talker, this one. Her hands never really stop. You just have to accept that the swirl that is her brightly painted fingernails will pause only briefly to reposition her fashion-forward eyeglasses, drawing your focus to her gleaming gaze, or to frame her face just so, the exquisite finishes on the tips of her fingers surpassed only by their exact timing to underline not only her jaw but also the point she's making. Her high-beam smile. Her hair pulled back. The fireworks of color on her hands. It's a magnificent sight to behold, her bubbly personality spilling out of the screen. The one and only Glitter Glucose, diva of the diabetes care world, is on the line with a couple of Midwesterners. And so long as we're in her presence, we're instantly transformed into full members of her Glitterati, 'girly, fashionable and fun,' as our glitzy and glamourous creator of this moment ordained. And so it shall be. All she wants in return: 'For people joining our club that they don't want to join to feel comfortable.' Glitter Glucose — superhero alter ego, personal influencer brand and, yes, who she says she's always been at her core — is simply Paloma to her friends and family. Or Ms. Kemak if you're formal. While Paloma Kemak was born 30-something years ago (we didn't press for more detail), Glitter Glucose showed up on the scene only in the last few years. She's here now, sharing how her experience evolved from ignoring her chronic condition entirely to pricking her fingers to manage her diabetes to fully embracing the FreeStyle Libre 2 continuous glucose monitoring system.* Her mission: To create a community that helps others who find themselves as she found herself when she was first diagnosed and joined that 'club' she had no interest in joining either. 'I spent two years of my time from 2013 on miserable,' Kemak said. 'I want to be that face and be that friend so when they're living their 2013, they look at me and they're like, 'Oh, we look alike, we have the same thing. Look at her, she's having fun and living her life.''
