Why did you choose your research topic? In the fall of 2016, I co-founded a club focused on body image and eating disorder awareness, so it is a subject that is very close to my heart. I also can't stress enough the importance of promoting positive body image and showing people how wonderful it is to be comfortable in your own skin.

Why did you choose to work with your mentor?: My mentor was my professor for Marketing 201, and she is also the advisor for the body image and eating disorder awareness club I am co-president of. We both share a common passion in the subject and she will bring great insight to my research and research processes since she has done extensive research on body image herself.
