MEET THE PROTOSTARS
Trustee, Friend, Shooting Star, Protostar, Shinging Star
My name is Laura, I’m 22 from Perth Western Australia, originally born in Scotland. I was 16 when I was diagnosed with MRKH, it turned my world upside down. I lost myself completely. But now, I have found myself because of my MRKH. I found so many amazing communities with other MRKH sisters and now Stars which I can’t wait to be a part of and share my stories with you all! I am currently working as a pharmacy assistant and I absolutely love my job! I’m joining Stars as I’m finally ready to share my story, my struggles, my highs and lows, all of it! I can’t wait to meet more of my MRKH sisters all over the world

I have known that I have MRKH since I was 11 years old, but I didn't know it was called MRKH until March of 2021. I researched and discovered that I have type 2 since I was diagnosed with VACTERL association from birth. Because I was so young, I never really processed everything until a little over a year ago. I am very private about MRKH in my personal life, but I'm using this opportunity of being on the writing team to be more open and start my advocacy journey. I love the immediate sisterhood that is formed between these MRKH warriors and I'm eager to be a part of it. My goal with joining this team is to make sure that new MRKH warriors know they're not alone in their battle because they have an army of sisters behind them to support and cheer them on every step of the way.
I'm Angelica, a 20-year-old stay at home wife in South Alabama. I was diagnosed with MRKH at the young age of 16, it was a very lonely path trying to process what I had just learned about myself. I’m very grateful to be able to join the MRKH Stars team, I hope that with this amazing new journey I will get to learn about others journey and experience with MRKH. I can’t wait to get to know everyone and meet new people along the way!
I’m Ashley, I’m 20 from Perth Western Australia, I was 16 when I was diagnosed with MRKH. It was a massive shock,I felt completely alone and confused. After loads of scans, testing , knowledge and community’s including Stars surrounding MRKH I didn’t feel so alone. I have found myself and I now know how unique I am. We are not any less powerful! I can’t wait to share my story, my experience, my struggles. The hard times are all worth the outcome. I can’t wait to meet more MRKH sisters and comfort each other through this crazy journey together.
Hi! I am Baleigh! I’m 16 years old and a junior in high school. I’m apart of my schools media team and am on the varsity volleyball team. Apart from these, I’m the oldest of 3 siblings. I love taking photos of people in sports and hope to do this as a career someday! I was diagnosed at 14 last August. I felt terrible, I was depressed and felt broken. Sometimes I was in denial it happened to me because how could I be the 1 in 5000? Even though it’s been a year, I still have trouble coping and becoming comfortable with my diagnosis. I joined MRKH Stars to help others do the same!
Hi I'm Emma, I am 17 and in college for graphic design! I was diagnosed September of 2022. Initially I really struggled to wrap my head around the diagnosis because it changed so many of the plans I had for my life. I just kept wondering how this could possibly be happening to me. I am still on my journey to healing and have a feeling that journey has a long way to go still! One of the things that has helped me the most is joining MRKH communities and the reminder that my favorite Bible verse Jeremiah 29:11 holds! I hope that I can help others get through the same pain that I felt. I can't wait to see what the future holds!
