My name is Leonor, and I’m a “Frenchie discovering life with type 1 diabetes”. I was diagnosed with the condition In December 2016. Instead of despairing, I let it shape a better version of myself. Each day, I discover life with type 1 diabetes by sharing positive energy and meeting incredible human beings in the community. This experience inspired me to found the non-profit @type1family because we are a family of sorts.
You can find stories of my everyday life with diabetes and advocacy work on Instagram @t1d.leonor. Today, I work in international business development for a French cosmetics brand, and in my free time, I like to go out, travel, learn and run. I even completed a New York marathon!
