Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2007

Member of YLD since 2017 (YLD Candidate).

I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 16 and have been living with diabetes for the past 10 years. Upon being diagnosed, it took me over 6years to gain acceptance of this condition. Since then, I have taken up the role of a diabetes advocate providing a voice for and educating the youth living with diabetes in St. Lucia.
