I am a 26 year old psychology student from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have a genuine love for understanding and helping others. I have only recently realized my purpose: to help eliminate body image and eating disorders, and I am now working to make that dream a reality.. In my free time I enjoy sports and the outdoors, music, singing, reading and birdwatching.
About my Loss:

It has been very hard to open up to others since that point (making and sustaining friendships have been nearly impossible), and I am trying to learn how to make adjustments to my new life.
