Mariyam Nafha

Maldives

Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2015

Member of YLD since 2017 (Young Leader).

During the past few years with diabetes, I’ve faced a lot of problems. Discrimination among the society was one of the biggest problems and also, the lack of knowledge about diabetes in the Maldives.
I’m hoping that this program will help me create more awareness in the society and reduce discrimination. I believe that this opportunity can be useful to myself and the society as well.
