My name is Mika Jayne Covington.

I am 27 years old and I live with  cystinosis. I was diagnosed with cystinosis at around 10 months old. Cystinosis is a very rare metabolic disease that causes cells to crystallize and die. Cystinosis slowly destroys the organs in the body including the kidneys, eyes, liver, lungs, muscles, and brain. 

Recently, I decided to do more for the cystinosis community and therefore, I am volunteering with the  Cystinosis Research Network (CRN) and joining their group  Future by Design (FBD)FBD was created to help make the cystinosis journey easier. 

FBD is a group of adults living with cystinosis who've come together to pave a brighter future for the children, teens, and adults touched by our rare disease.

One major project of FBD is our Outreach program that works to connect individuals and build relationships within the cystinosis community.



Along with my participation in FBD, I plan to continue to volunteer and work for progressive political change.

As a transgender person (my preferred gender pronouns are she, her, hers or they/them) I plan to continue working to end anti-LGBTQIA+ bias on campus and helping fill the education gap in Iowa on LGBTQIA+ issues and history. I plan to fight for Free College for All, Medicare for All, and transgender equality.

Volunteering on these issues takes time, effort, and money. One example is an upcoming conference with FBD in Philadelphia and I will need to pay for travel. This is just one example of my need for support.

Therefore, I humbly ask you to make a small donation to help further my work on these causes. 

You can donate here on Patreon or you can make a one-time donation on mygofundme page. 



More info about me: 

I am a college student at the University of Iowa studying psychology and German. I have been a Democratic Party activist and organizer since 2010 working on Mayoral campaigns to working for President Barack Obama as an organizing fellow with Organizing for America (OFA).

Later, I volunteered with Organizing for Action (OFA) as a spring fellow and worked for the progressive change we voted for in 2012. I am a former Pottawattamie County Democratic Party Affirmative Action Chair.

I am a former Field Organizer for the Bernie Sanders 2016 Presidential campaign and at the Iowa State Democratic Convention in 2016 I ran for Democratic Nation Committeeperson and won a significant number of votes making me a strong challenger to the Democratic party establishment.

This is my story, and it continues.
