OUR GIRL GANG
MEET OUR AMBASSADORS!
What do they all have in common? They are empowered people who are proactively raising awareness within their communities and online. Our ambassadors aim to raise awareness of invisible illnesses, share their personal experiences online and share honest reviews of the products we stock to their audience. We believe our ambassadors are an essential part of our online store and we are so proud to have these superstars working with us!
Describe yourself in 3 words: Empowered, tired, willing
When you were diagnosed with your illness: Surgically diagnosed in September 2018
The most important thing you want people to know about your illness: That you need to educate yourself SO much before you do anything - surgery/hormonal contraception, endometriosis is still new to doctors.
Career: Registered Nurse
Hobbies: Hockey, Yoga and Netflix
Why you wanted to be apart of our ambassador team: Because I want to make change in the community. These products have helped me with battling my disease
Favourite quote: “You don’t get it until you get it” - this quote relates to me so much as one of my best friends had endometriosis/Adenomyosis and I never really understood it until I was diagnosed myself
Describe yourself in 3 words: introvert, empathetic, resilient
When you were diagnosed with your illness: On August 10, 2018 after my first Endometriosis excision surgery (on my 6 month wedding anniversary).
The most important thing you want people to know about your illness: That I’m not necessarily unreliable - my illness is. I used to be a major busybody, who still believes 10 minutes early is on time and on time is late. Now you’re lucky if I even make it! It’s been hard to accept that I’m a late / flaky person now.
Career/study): in my final year of a Bachelor of Media and working a few casual jobs in retail and ICT.
Hobbies: I absolutely love my church and look forward to going every Sunday, occasionally serving in the early childhood child-minding centre. I also am obsessed with my Black and Tan sausage dog puppy, Jenny.
Why you wanted to be apart of our ambassador team: I’ve basically decided my life’s mission is to raise awareness about Endometriosis and help as many women as possible avoid the horrible waiting period between first symptoms and diagnosis. I also am really interested in natural remedies and using food as medicine, and I felt all of my personal beliefs were aligned with The Uterus Project’s!
Favourite quote: “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NLT)
I also LOVE the story about Jesus’ interaction with a woman who had constant menstrual bleeding for TWELVE YEARS. I truly believe she had a uterine disease like me and I love her boldness. Read Matthew chapter 9, verses 20-22 to get the full story.
My name is Kayla Jayne and I am a proud representative of The Uterus Project.
A lot of people know me as ‘notanotherhealthblog’ on Instagram. I created notanotherhealthblog when I was diagnosed with Adenomyosis.
I was diagnosed post-surgery at the age of 21. Adenomyosis can be caused from invasive surgery, which is unfortunately what happened to me. It affects the walls of the uterus and can cause horrific pain. I wanted to turn my pain into something more than a condition I was going to live with.
My page, notanotherhealthblog, is known for giving honest reviews on products, sharing recipes, and health tips that have helped my journey. When I started my journey, I was a meat eater with chronic pain. Most days I could not walk if I ate inflammation triggering foods. Because of this I have been an advocate for fasting, plant-based diet and natural products- all of which, saved me from being in pain.
Today I am pain free 80% of the time. I wanted to be a part of something that helped others which is why I have helped bring to life The Uterus Project in hopes others will benefit from this amazing online store.
The Uterus Project aims to inspire and shine a light on chronic illnesses. Many women who are first diagnosed with Adenomyosis frantically google and find zero answers or support systems. The Uterus Project is aiming to let women know they are not alone.
