Amber Terelle Sells 19, was born on May 12th 2000. She lost her battle to Juvenile Diabetes on Tuesday September 24th 2019 in her dorm at Wesley College. She was born in Dover , Delaware to her father, the late Mr. James W. Sells Jr and her mother, Mrs. Lonjya D. Drummond.

She was a graduate of Middletown High School and a first year student at Wesley College where she aspired to be a physical therapist. Her favorite team was the New York Giants and she never doubted their capability to win the Super Bowl year after year. In addition to her love for the Giants, she was a super fan of rapper A. Boogie. Her favorite songs by A. Boogie were “Swervin”, and “Jungle”. She also enjoyed Marvin Sapp’s “He has his hands on you”.
