Jordan Laiche


Jordan is a 24-year-old Anderson School of Management student at the University of New Mexico currently pursuing a double major. After being diagnosed in May of 2011, he was motivated to do more than just try to live a normal life with type 1 diabetes. He wants to push the limits and do things of epic proportions to show that Type 1 doesn’t limit your life in any way. Jordan is a former collegiate athlete and rode his bike across the United States as a part of Team Bike Beyond. He wants to continue to focus on Living Beyond by completing physical challenges that aren’t just impressive because he does them with Type 1, but challenges that are difficult for any human. He wants to encourage others to do the same because the more you learn about how strong you are, the easier it is to face challenges in your life.
