I started the Project HEAL chapter at SUNY New Paltz because I have always struggled with my body image ever since I was younger. As I got older I developed an eating disorder and struggled with it for about five years. I want to educate others on eating disorders and teach them about the myths surrounding eating disorders, and the stigma about eating disorders. I want to teach others that it can affect all different types of people, and that it can be extremely dangerous. I think what Project HEAL does is so important in raising money for treatment. Without my treatment I do not know where I would be. However, I understand how expensive it can be to receive treatment, and want to help others afford treatment for themselves. I am a firm believer that recovery is possible, and want to support and educate others, in reaching their full potential and goals.
