Stephanie Cesile

Hi everyone, I’m Stephanie Cesile from the sun burnt country - Australia. I’m 21 years old and have been living with type 1 diabetes since age 10. From day 1 I took control of my diabetes management with the support of my family and health care team. I began on syringes before making the big step to pens, and 5 years ago leapt into pump therapy and haven’t looked back. I am currently in my fourth year of university, studying combined degrees of business and science with the hope of being a geologist one day.

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...).
