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. I am looking forward to working within this team to ensure all YLD are supported to positively impact their communities and regions. As a united group we are a pwerful voice, so lets be as loud as possible for diabetes.
