Hello! Thank you for checking out my blog! My name is Emily Locke and I am a 21 year old woman born and raised in Portland, OR.
I am a writer/blogger, dancer, and an advocate for mental health. I have battled mental illnesses from a young age, and as a result 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 and minoring in Psychology. I hope to someday be a published author, and eating disorder activist.
I have been writing monthly guest blogger articles for the National Eating Disorders Association since November of 2017. My writing has also been featured on Women You Should Know’s website, and most recently I was a part of a collaboration with Healthline.
Welcome to my journey of recovery and learning to love and accept myself.
