Type 1, Brisbane
Hassan Mohamed is a 22-year-old Queenslander who has lived with type 1 diabetes since 2005. Hassan contacted Diabetes Queensland to enquire about our Ambassadors Program, which is gathering a group of diabetes warriors throughout Queensland to be spokespeople, give speeches, attend events, and support us on social media. “I want to speak to all people who want information about diabetes or even if they don’t have diabetes to let them know about it,” Hassan said. “Maybe I can be of most use in my own community.” Hassan’s parents were born in Somalia.
