Campaign: To show that eating disorders should be taken seriously

I was diagnosed with anorexia at the age of 11.

It concerns me when people with eating disorders are seen as being image obsessed and aren’t taken as seriously as they should be.

I’m now able to control my condition a lot better than before, but recovery is very much a journey.

For my Fixers project, I’m raising awareness of eating disorders and the impact they can have on people’s lives.

I hope this will improve understanding of the conditions, while enabling others like myself to get the help they need.

Suzanne Steel is helping me with this Fix.
