Robin Koops pictures his life in TED Talk

November 26, 2019 – Robin Koops tells his own story about his daily life with diabetes.  

On 8 November last, TEDx Amsterdam had organized an event in Amsterdam. Robin Koops had been invited to present himself in a so-called TED Talk. During his speech, Robin told his own story about his daily life with diabetes. From the day that he was diagnosed until today. During the past nearly 30 years, he lives his life, with diabetes. The image he evokes is so personal and powerful that it makes you quiet. Robin also has a message for us: your life with diabetes is not the same life as before, the diabetes lives your life, everything turns around that. “I want you to remember that.” When he finishes, the audience stands up for him.

Watch Robin and his life history in this video.
