You are not alone “My life once revolved around a number on the scale. When I first came to ECU I made a promise to myself to start loving who I was and to treat my body with kindness and respect. When I heard about Fresh Check Day I immediately felt drawn towards the body image booth. Hearing other people’s eating disorder and body image stories made me feel like I wasn’t alone for the FIRST TIME in my life. We all stood together as one and wrote what loving our- selves meant to us on a banner and hung them up in unity. The reassurance and confidence strangers across campus presented that afternoon inspired me to continue living a healthy, eating disorder free, lifestyle for many years to come. I’m very thankful to have been a part of such an impactful event, and I’m ecstatic to be working at it this upcoming year as well!” — Clare
