A couple years ago at a student council lunch meeting I heard about the opportunity to donate blood. I was all gung ho about donating blood, wanting to know everything! What was my blood type? How do I sign up? Who will this help? Until I was told that I wasn’t old enough to donate. Feeling a little bit rejected, I kept my hopes high. Even though I wasn’t able to donate blood at 14/15/16 years old I was still very determined to find out my blood type.
It wasn’t until I was 16 years old that my doctor tested my blood and told me what my blood type was, A+ is my blood type! It sounded like I passed that test with flying colours! (pun intended) About 34% of the population has blood type A+ which makes it the second most common blood type after O+. CLICK HERE to hear about my experience donating blood for the first time!!
