Hadley Thayer, 23 years old, recovering from anorexia nervosa (and a hodgepodge of other addictions such as cutting, exercise, drugs etc...) Since the onset of my ED at 14, I spent most of my teen years in hospitals and treatment centers. While they saved my life, they did not provide lasting recovery. I am currently recovering on my own (with a wonderful outpatient treatment team!) I have over a year of sobriety :) I attended UC Berkeley and Georgetown University for undergrad, focusing on neuroscience, immunology/virology and political science/IR respectively, and can't wait to keep studying when I am healthy and ready to do so! I was living in Argentina and about to begin school there when health issues related to my ED forced me to return to the US. But my plan is to return! I am an extremely passionate person.
