My name is Ash, I’m 22 years old and I am from Australia. I am currently living with an undiagnosed chronic illness. Finding Rainbows In The Dark was created to share my story and create awareness for others living with undiagnosed conditions. I also hope to inspire others experiencing any kind of hardship in their lives with my positivity and determination.


Prior to becoming chronically ill, I was studying a double degree of law and psychology full time and working full-time hours as a waitress. I was extremely fit and healthy as I was a pole dancer and instructor, plus a regular gym-goer. On top of this, I also maintained a great social life and a healthy relationship with my partner of four years. My lifestyle was extremely full-on but I loved every minute of my busy life!



For a long time, I struggled to describe who I am without those things but I am now at a place where I am confident with who I am. You can read about how I came to this here. I am creative and passionate, which I express through my writing. I am determined and motivated to live a positive and inspirational life. I love people; talking to them, learning about them and learning from them so get in touch with me here.

My life has changed completely due to chronic illness but I am using this change to my advantage.  I am now pursuing my childhood dream of becoming a writer by studying a degree in professional writing and publishing. I am determined to live a happy and positive life, no matter where my illness takes me.

Thank you for reading about me, I hope my journey inspires you in some way.

Much love,
