TWIN FALLS, Idaho-- The new Miss Idaho is making a splash on social media this week.

Sierra Sandison was diagnosed with Type I diabetes in 2012 and has previously spoken about her fear of wearing her insulin pump in public. But during this year's pageant, she decided to wear it proudly. Now, she's inspiring people across the country.

That's why she started a campaign called "show me your pump." Sandison wrote on Facebook,  "I have faced my fear of proudly showing my insulin pump! Now I want to see YOURS! Post your photo on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook-- make sure it is shared publicly so I can see it) with the hashtag #showmeyourpump! The nationwide support from my fellow diabetics this weekend has been AMAZING! I can't wait to see more of you guys! This is not limited to just girls, or to people with pumps--I want to see YOU and whatever your daily battle with diabetes looks like. "
