Youth At Risk (YAR) Conference

Endicott College 376 Hale Street, Beverly, MA

From Perfect to Purpose: A Student's Experience With Anxiety, Perfectionism, And Substance Use - “I have a purpose, and it is not to be the smallest version of myself.” Today, that is one of Elizabeth’s favorite mantras. But this quote, from eating disorder survivor and self-acceptance advocate Simi Botic, didn’t always resonate with her. Elizabeth shares her story to help adults better understand the inner lives of youth, especially those who look like they have it all. Q&A to follow.
