About Daanya

Hi, I'm Daanya and I'm 18-years-old. I live in Malaysia.  I lived a pretty normal life with IBS till June 2020 where I developed fevers every single night for months and abdominal pain. I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2020 and underwent ileocaecal resection surgery in the same year. 

Back then, I had no idea what inflammatory bowel disease was. It took me a while to wrap my head around the fact that this is incurable. I thought my life was ruined, especially as a teenager entering college.  However, without Crohn's disease, I wouldn't be who I am today.  I have developed a strong interest in biology and hope to help people with diseases like this in the future.  So, keep fighting fellow IBDers, all of you are so strong.
