Jenna Cantamessa is an Instagram Blogger from Australia who writes about her own experiences of Type 1 Diabetes at @Typeonevibes. Jenna says that she finds it exciting to scroll through the days of other people with Type 1 Diabetes from all over the world, as there is always something to relate to, laugh at or learn from. She find that using her Instagram page to turn a negative diagnosis into an positive opportunity has been very gratifying.

Jenna is 26 years old and currently lives in sunny North Queensland (Townsville) in Australia. She was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes seven years ago at the age of 19. Her diagnosis was unusual as she didn’t show any common symptoms of diabetes and still to this day her doctors scratch their heads at her diabetes journey.
