    Hey, hello, hi. How are you?

    My name is Lydia. I’m a sophomore in high school, born in Ethiopia, but raised in none other than the US. I know I’m pretty young, but I hope my story can aspire others to love themselves endlessly. At only a few months old, I was adopted. It honestly was […]

    I was born and raised in a Christian home. But fact is I always felt ALONE. there was this void ,this emptiness that drove me to always seek attention. I was desperate for love, for attention, for a sense of belonging..

    When I was younger I always got compliments on my smile and laugh. As I got older, life introduced new struggles and more dark days than bright ones. I remember one time I was sitting in one of my classes my freshman year of high school and something really funny was said. And it took […]

    I absolutely believe […]

    If you said yes to any of these then […]

    I could feel her looking at me as I stared out the window. She asked the question again and I knew I had to respond. “So you don’t think you’re thin enough to have an eating disorder?” I stared at her defiantly as I replied,”No”. But even as I said those words my voice trembled. […]
