Zach has always lived a life unscripted, chasing adventure and longing to travel this world’s far corners. A diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes in 2013 did little to dampen his spirit. Though diabetes can be physically and emotionally demanding, Zach refuses to be held back by his diagnosis and continues to travel, chasing waves, following bands and living life on his own terms. Through Travelbetic, Zach hopes to challenge the stereotypes about type 1 diabetes and inspire others to overcome life’s obstacles and lead a healthy life through travel and adventure as well as raise awareness about type 1 diabetes and debunk common myths surrounding the disease.  Through his blog,, Zach challenges common misconceptions about the limitations diabetes places on an individual and offers encouragement and tips for other diabetics to get out into the world and challenge themselves and their personal limits. Zach believes adventure has a healing power far greater than any traditional medicine. Adventure trains us to expect and accept mishaps and manage risk, it teaches us that shortcomings and tremendous challenges are inevitable and helps us to feel less victimized by our situation.

Dreaming the Afterlife: New Age Artist Sonaljit Mukherjee

Sonaljit is an independent artist in the genre of New Age Music. His inclination towards music began during his undergraduate life in India. He used to participate in music shows and local competitions as a singer. Later on he felt the need to provide instrumental backing to his singing, so he began learning keyboard playing. It was then that he got acquainted with new age music or contemporary instrumentals, particularly by listening to Yanni and Vangelis. The idea of implementing several instruments into one single track seemed fascinating and challenging. However he did not have proper recording equipment and synthesizers by then. He came to United States for higher studies, and built up a small home studio for his musical projects, and has been continuing ever since. He released his first New Age album on June 2013. It's called "Dreaming the Afterlife." It is a collection of contemporary instrumental compositions and piano solo renditions.The entire album was produced in his home studio including the composing, orchestration, recording and mastering. The artwork was created by combining and editing many images of Sun and clouds, photographed by his friend Anshuman Dubey. It is a detailed depiction of a dream that he saw, which propelled him to work on this album.

Erin has become an expert in leading a balanced, healthy, fulfilled life as a mother through her personal experiences since delivering her first child nearly six years ago. Married to an Air Force F-15 pilot, Erin has moved four times since her wedding ten years ago, and as a result she has bonded with and learned from mothers from all over the world. Erin believes wholeheartedly that motherhood is one of the most beautiful blessings that life has to offer, but it also presents a multitude of additional challenges for self-care and personal development. Erin’s mission is to love, nurture, and support moms so they can love themselves, live their best lives, and better care for their families.
