This one is hard for me.  I was putting off writing about this uncomfortable situation I found myself in for a while because I was embarrassed, because I thought maybe the comment made to me was justified in some way.  But after a few weeks of processing, I’m realizing...

Diet. A word that gets thrown around all the time.  I’m sure everyone in their life has said or heard someone proclaim that they are going on a diet or talk avidly about the latest fad which is guaranteed to make you lose all your body fat in three weeks.  Maybe diets...

Hello world! I want to apologize for my over two month hiatus, but it feels really good to be back and writing and reflecting.  In late June I departed for my year long study abroad experience in South America. I started in Ecuador where I was for 5 weeks taking classe...

So, for this post, I’m gonna change it up a little bit.  I want to talk about something not at all related to body positivity, but something that has been weighing on me these past few days: gun control.  I’m sure most of you have seen the news about the school shootin...

This past week marked my first full week back at school for the spring semester.  And I won’t lie: it was not easy.  I had a winter break full of amazing adventures and even more amazing people.  I got to hike some of the most breathtaking trails in Israel, watch a sun...
