Tammy Moran

My name is Tammy and I am currently 27 years old and have lived with T1D for 18years. I live in the most isolated city in the world: Perth, Western Australia. However, I grew up in a tiny country town on a farm with my parents and three older sisters! I was diagnosed on a family holiday in New Zealand back in 1997; I was so ill on the day of diagnosis that I could no longer run, walk or stand. It was a massive learning curve as my parents knew minimal about the disease, while my sisters and I had never heard of it.

Ashley Ng

I am Ashley from Australia. From 2012 I started blogging about my experience and reflections of living with diabetes. Melbourne 2013 marked my first YLD training . Needless to say, being part of the programme has deeply enriched my life. Since then, I have also been working closely with Diabetes Australia in coordinating camps for children with type 1 diabetes aged between 5-8 years including their parents. Professionally I am a dietitian working towards my PhD in the area of diabetes self-management behaviours in young adults.

Stephanie Cesile

I am Stephanie Cesile from Australia and I am very honoured to be part of the Executive Committee for 2015/17 representing our fantastic YLD programme. My diabetes journey began at age 10. I joined the IDF YLD programme in Melbourne 2013 proudly representing Australia. Since my late teenage years I have been passionate about acting on diabetes in my community, and joining the IDF YLD has provided me with the resources, support and confidence to act with impact.

Rachel Lamb

My name is Rachel Lamb, I am a 22 year old Australian from Perth. I also have had Type 1 Diabetes for 4 years. I was diagnosed when I was 18 years old on Valentine's Day 2009. Having to spend it in hospital was one of the many things I had to come to terms with, pretty quickly! I was ill for about 8 months before anyone uncovered what was going on - family, friends, myself and medical professionals all missed every textbook warning sign (weight loss, frequent urination, increased hunger, increased thirst, fatigue, thrush, cramps, etc...).
