Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2007

Member of YLD since 2017 (YLD Candidate).

A young medical professional and ten year old diabetic, enthusiastic about discovering different experiences and new ways of creating awareness among my population. The YLD programme, I hope, will further empower me to disseminate information effectively to my entire country which sorely lacks a proper awareness or outreach facility.
