For the last week, my school has been doing all sorts of events to address the subject of true beauty for National Eating Disorder Awareness week. I have been so pleasantly surprised at the level of involvement from everyone on campus, & so impressed with the events that the leadership team has put on. Also, it has been wonderful to see that this week’s events have not only been centered around the awareness of the “disease” but more an awareness of what true beauty really is, & also the fact that eating disorders are commonly just side effects of someone who is experiencing a much deeper kind of pain. It really turned into a week of learning how to love yourself, how to be healthy in body & mind when it comes to self-image & habits, & how to love & support those around you who may be struggling.
This video was made after students were asked what the definition of true beauty was in their minds. Some of these answers are pretty amazing. I’m truly impressed. Thank you Whitworth University, for an awesome week of awareness! I love my campus.
