I had the opportunity to meet Nikki earlier this year, when she visited our campus in support of NEDA’s Eating Disorders Awareness Week. I was impressed by her ability to relay her story with a genuine vulnerability, openness, and heart. Students felt a sense of connection with her, and walked away with a better understanding of what it means to struggle with and overcome an eating disorder.
