Young Leaders from France

My name is Pauline and I am 25 years old. At the moment I live in Grenoble, France, until the end of my studies. I’m currently learning communication and I’m doing my internship in a pharmaceutical company, working on diabetes.

I was diagnosed with diabetes a few days before my third birthday. It was the first time I celebrated something in a hospital (not the last one!). I was so young I cannot remember the transition or my life without diabetes. I’ve always had a good relationship with my healthcare professionals; I was this happy and dynamic little girl living with diabetes. My parents always told me that I was like other kids, I just had something more I should be proud of. That’s what I’ve done!
