I’m a 20 year old type-1 diabetic, who studies politics and is currently living in Budapest. Yes, it’s a big mix. I created this blog not only to express my own thought on random political things, but also as a vehicle for Diabetes advocacy, especially regarding the Unite For Diabetes campaign, headed by the International Diabetes Federation. As a member of the Novo Nordisk Youth Panel, and as an IDF Youth Ambassador, i hope to make a difference not only in the way diabetes is viewed, but in the way diabetes is treated and educated around the world. In this sense, i hope to see the pandemic of Diabetes treated appropriately.

In the time it took you to to read this article:
