Merve Cicek Aypak grew up in her home country Turkey and after finishing her studies she moved to Dubai and started her career. She’s currently based in New Jersey, USA, working as a global brand manager at a multinational corporation, crafting brands for a living. She is living with her husband and rescue dog Pluto.
Merve was diagnosed with Endometriosis in May 2020 after suffering with the disease for twenty years. Her long journey and unpleasant experiences with the health system and doctors in multiple continents made her realize the lack of awareness about Endometriosis. Her purpose is to help others by raising awareness and funding for Endometriosis so that nobody would suffer silently for years and everyone can have access to specialists. She’s sharing her story and experience through her Instagram account @beautyendobeast to inspire other women to never settle until they find the answers to their long pending questions.
