It means I’m aware of my struggles, and now I’m working on it,” says 24-year-old Kelly Uchima (@ kellyu), who lives in Chicago. From elementary school through college, Kelly struggled with eating disorders. In 2015, she sought support from a therapist, and her relationship with herself started to transform, both IRL and on Instagram. Today her account, previously focused on fitness, is devoted to self-love. “Pursuing a relationship with yourself, your body and food in self-loving ways is such a journey that’s forever,” says the academic researcher. “I think that’s my biggest mission in social media: showing people how to become their own friend, their own supporter.” 💕 To learn more about Kelly, check out today’s story.
