One of the most common challenges women face is the obsession with appearance and beauty, and in many cultures around the world, the desire to be thin. Pauline Hanuise, Class of 2013, was once trapped in a vicious cycle of food restriction, bingeing, and purging. For 15 years, this Belgium native was a victim of bulimia so serious that her teeth began to break, her hair began to fall out, and she suffered from an irregular heartbeat.
After hitting rock bottom at the age of 27, Pauline took control of her health and embarked on a journey of self-love and acceptance. She now has a thriving online health coaching practice where she helps other women regain freedom over food.
