Personal Statement

Why I chose Bulimia Nervosa

The reason I chose this topic is because some I know personally has struggled with Bulimia since she was 11 and her journey has definitely been extremely grueling and difficult for her. It’s extremely hard to know someone you think so highly of, could be going through something so brutal. She has definitely helped me learn more about this, and through my further research I learned so much more. Everyone should know about this disease because of how serious it is. Bulimia is no laughing matter, and is not an easy thing to deal with. Remember, just because you think someone is totally ok, doesn’t mean you’re totally right.
