Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2011

Member of YLD since 2017 (YLD Candidate).

In the past, being a small kid, I did not pay much attention to type-1-diabetes-related issues. Seldom did I join activities held by local diabetes concern group, Youth Diabetes Action (YDA). However, when I grew older, I started to realize how important YDA is in extending the olive branch to the youth and their families who are in need. This time, I would like to take this precious chance and learn from the young leaders who come from all over the world. Understanding and learning from others’ strengths, I hope I can contribute to my society one day.
