I am an undergraduate student at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD. My area of study is in Kinesiology, which is the study of the human body in motion.
This blog was begun in the spring of 2013 as my Keystone project, which is a requirement to graduate with an Honors citation from my honors program. My purpose is to write about and expose the body image beliefs and expectations for women that are latent in society. Rather than focus my energies on a “rant and rave” style of blogging, I am aiming for active thought about topics and events that help illuminate the fact that abnormal and negative body image is the cultural norm for women.
