My name is Elizabeth and I have had type 1 for 23 years.  I moved from the USA to the UK 4 years ago to study international development. I met my husband in London. He also has type 1 diabetes!  Together we started www.t1international.com, a charity that advocates for people with type 1 diabetes around the world. We share stories of those who face difficult situations (like lack of access to insulin and diabetes supplies) and those who are working to make life better for our friends with type 1. We also do research and campaigning, so check us out @t1international and make sure to join our #insulin4all campaign this November for World Diabetes Day!

How do you inspire others?
By fighting for #insulin4all

How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
I wouldn’t have found a niche way to make the world a little bit better (hopefully)

Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
1 large duck
