SONIA'S STORY

The Sonia Nabeta Foundation was founded by Elizabeth and
Stephen Nabeta in honor of their daughter, Sonia Stephanie
Clarissa Kyagaba Nabeta who fought a valiant fight against
T1D until she joined the angels on August 5, 2015.

A quintessential Taurus millennial, she never let 16 years of
living with T1D get in her way. She lived her life according
to her favorite maxim:

Pic-section-2

A woman for all seasons and a Jill of all trades, Sonia was as
much a music and popular culture historian as she was a writer
as she was a radio personality as she was an entrepreneur.
With her signature giggle, she lived a full life and leaves
behind a 4 year old gem of a son, Aedan! It is the hope of the
Sonia Nabeta Foundation that her warm, lovely and unforgettable
spirit will inspire those living with T1D to never
let the condition be a reason not to soar.
