"Doing more is not necessarily better... sometimes learning to step back is the best thing that you can do for yourself." - Steph

Steph struggled with anorexia while growing up in Hong Kong. In her story she talks about the impact that the extreme diet in Hong Kong had on her. In addition to extreme diet culture, Hong Kong also had a major lack of eating disorder awareness and treatment options. As a result, Steph recovered at home with the support of her family. Steph is now a student at Duke University and is the founder of Body Banter, which is an online platform that aims to engage communities in increased discussions about body image, raise awareness about the diversity in our experiences of body image issues and to make body positivity practices accessible and engaging.
