Lauren Burkholder is a college student majoring in physical therapy with a passion for health, fitness, and happiness. She struggled with anorexia and exercise addiction since eight grade. After two relapses and three recoveries, Lauren has successfully recovered from both. Now she has a new perspective on life and wishes to share it with others who struggle with eating disorders. As she says, “God didn’t put me through this without a reason. He always has a reason.” She believes that this reason was so she could help others in their recovery journeys. Writing has been an important factor to Lauren’s recovery, especially poetry. She also has an Instagram account dedicated to modeling a healthy, balanced lifestyle after recovery.
