Hello! Thank you for checking out my blog! My name is Emily Locke and I am a 22-year-old woman born and raised in Portland, OR.
I am a writer, blogger, dancer, mental health advocate, and an aspiring author. I have battled mental illnesses from a young age, and as a result I am very passionate about raising awareness for eating disorders, generalized anxiety disorder, and depression, as well as promoting a positive body image.
I am an undergraduate student at North Carolina State University majoring in English with a creative writing concentration. I have written several guest blogger articles for the National Eating Disorders Association. My writing has also been featured on Women You Should Know’s website, and last year I was a part of a collaboration with Healthline.
Welcome to my journey of recovery and learning to love and accept myself.
