I am twenty-one years old and from Brandon, Manitoba. I’m in my fourth year as a Psychology Major at Brandon University with plans to apply next year to the physiotherapy program at the University of Manitoba. I have been actively working towards recovery for almost two years now, after developing an eating disorder in high school. Although I would not wish it upon anyone, overcoming my eating disorder has provided me with the opportunity to learn and grow as a person in ways I probably never would have otherwise, a blessing in disguise. I’m a self-proclaimed nerd, lover of all things ice cream and chocolate, and spend my spare time being outside as much as possible, except when I have a good book.
