Episode 21: My Endometriosis Story : Impact And Triumphs with Stephany Oromo
Show Notes

On Episode 21, I am bringing you the heroic story of Stephany Oromo and her battle with endometriosis. 

Endometriosis is a women’s disorder where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus is found elsewhere in the body – mainly in the abdominal cavity, causing chronic pelvic pain, fatigue, heavy bleeding and amongst other things.

Endometriosis, often referred to as “Endo” , impacts  approximately 10% of women of childbearing age. 

On today's show, our ‘Endo Warrior’, Stephany speaks with great vulnerability of her experience with this very painful menstrual condition and goes on to inspire us by looking beyond some of the challenges and speaking of the impact she is currently making in the world.

Stephany, is the founder of Authentic Clay, an initiative which supports children and young people with disabilities in rural areas from low-income environments. Her experiences have birthed great empathy in her and stoked a desire to channel her pain towards removing the pain of others. 

Turning pain into purpose is what this episode will challenge you to explore in your own life. 

This episode also sheds light on domestic violence from a child’s perspective. We start the show discussing some of Stephanie's childhood experiences which included frequently witnessing her Father being physically abusive towards her Mother.
