Hi! My name is Kelly-Dayne, and I am a 21-year-old college student, writer and diabetes advocate. I have had type 1 diabetes for little over 5 years, and diabetes has definitely dramatically changed my life.
For the past three years, I have worked as a diabetes youth advocate - and serve on the Novo Nordisk International Diabetes Youth Panel. We travel, we speak with people, we write everywhere we can, and we work to raise awareness about diabetes.
As a youth panel, our main charge is to raise global awareness about the UN resolution on diabetes and reach 1 billion people with the message to "unite for diabetes."
I love meeting people who are passionate about diabetes, health care and public health. :) My other passions in life are biology (the college major), basically anything outdoors, Alaska, Egyptology, traveling to new places and being a musician.
