ARTISTS STATEMENT
At 13-14 I was told I should lose 5lbs and taught myself how to be bulimic just to win a guy's approval. I battled with my eating disorder for 12-13 years. Hours of therapy, talks with friends/family, relationships took a toll, it wasn't until I was 25 that I finally decided that enough was enough. I started my yoga teacher training course and stopped cold turkey. I dove into self-love with myself and came out on top. Body image will always linger in my mind, but it's how I choose to react to my body that I have changed. I have my low days, but I never went back. I began a strong yoga practice and became very open to talking about my eating disorder. I love my body and am thankful every day to what it does for me.
